2. Arrange transportation

When your boxes are full or your food drive has ended, please feel free to drop the boxes off at the Community Food Bank warehouse between 9 AM and 3 PM on Monday through Friday at the North Entrance of the warehouse*. If the warehouse is not convenient, we can provide you with a list of year ‘round drop off sites for your convenience.

*Make sure you call first to let them know you are coming.

If you find you will need us to pick up your food, please call or email us at least a week in advance so that we may schedule your pick up. When you submit your request please tell us the following information:

  • Contact name
  • Contact phone number
  • Address of pick up site
  • Any special directions to help the driver locate the food
  • How much food is there to be picked up? It must be boxed for us to pick it up, so please tell us how many boxes are ready.
  • Hours of business during which we can pick up the food.

3. Consider a Virtual Food Drive

One of the easiest and most successful ways to run a food drive is to have us set up a Virtual Food Drive for you. If this is something you would like to learn more about click here

For each $1 donated through a virtual food drive we can distribute almost $9 of food.
