Coordinate a Food and Fund Drive
Virginia Peninsula Foodbank
Food is a basic need, and thousands of families in our community are hungry for help. The food bank depends on fundraising events throughout the year to fill our shelves with nutritious food items so that we can provide nourishment to help families across the Greater Peninsula who struggle with hunger live a brighter and healthier life. There are three ways that you can help:
- Collect non-perishable food items and/or,
- Collect monetary donations,
- Have a special event with proceeds benefiting the food bank.
A great way to volunteer is to coordinate a food drive at your church, local grocery store, school, business, in your neighborhood to collect food and monetary donation in support of our local hunger relief efforts.
Your efforts to coordinate a food and fund drive or a fundraising event mjakes an enormous difference in the amount of nutritious food that we are able to distribute in our community, transformnig lives for those in need.
