Host a Food Drive
Start a Virtual Food Drive
A virtual food drive is an easy and fun online alternative to a traditional non-perishable food drive.
Because Nourishing Hope is able to purchase 8 meals for every $1 we receive, by creating your own personal fundraising page and encouraging your friends and family to give, you can make a far greater impact than you would by collecting food on your own!
All funds raised in a virtual food drive support Nourishing Hope’s general operating expenses.
Hosting a food drive is a great way to get involved in your community!
If you or your group is interested in hosting a food drive — or in collecting financial donations during a food drive — we are happy to help you make it a success. Please keep in mind that we can only accept unopened, unexpired food items. Click the link below to fill out a form and get started!
