Organize a Food + Fund Drive
Your efforts make a big difference for the 1000’s of people each month who eat meals from emergency food boxes.
Both food and funds matter
Cash donations keep our freezers running, lights on, and our vehicles on the road. They also support our innovative programs to address the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education. Monetary donations also allow the Gallatin Valley Food Bank to purchase bulk food to be repacked by volunteers. Because we make large, bulk purchases, our cost per pound of food is far lower than that of food bought at retail prices by individuals.
Food drives provide some of the healthiest and highest-quality food the Gallatin Valley Food Bank receives. Food donations provide a link between you, the donor, and people who are hungry. Both food and funds are equally appreciated. We DO accept fresh produce as well!
Thank you for organizing a food and fund drive to help fight hunger in our community. As need continues to grow, food drives become increasingly important. Running a food drive is fun and easy!
Our step-by-step Food and Fund Drive Manual gives you all the information you need to run a successful food drive, from how to get started, to most needed foods, and donation signs, you can download and print.
To ensure food safety, we are unable to accept any of the following items:
Rusty or unlabeled cans
