Katie, Development Coordinator, Leadership Gifts with Food Drive BarrelsFriends, neighbors, co-workers — you name it! When you bring your community together this holiday season, you will make an impact towards ending hunger in our community.

If you are considering hosting or donating to a food drive, the Food Bank offers two fun and impactful ways to stock our shelves for the busy months to come:

  • Virtual Food Drives: Where technology and convenience meet to make a big impact! It’s easier than ever to set up your own or donate to a virtual food drive and “shop” for much-needed items such as milk, fresh eggs, and fresh produce — foods that can’t go into a food barrel. Thanks to the Food Bank’s bulk purchasing power, your virtual food drive gift goes much further than it would at the grocery store.
  • Traditional Barrel Drives: We know that many of you also like to pick up non-perishable food at the grocery store to donate. We’re thrilled to partner again with 1st United Credit Union as the official ACCFB food drive host. You can drop off your donations at any of their nine convenient locations throughout Alameda County.

To explore all your food drive options (holiday or year-round!) visit www.accfb.org/food-drive.
