Host a Fundraiser

Getting Started

Hosting a fundraiser for Food Gatherers keeps our warehouse shelves stocked and our trucks on the road six days a week, distributing food to our community partners. Our online giving tool makes it easy to host a fundraiser at your place of business, school, congregation, or with another group. Download our Food & Fund Drive Planning Guide for tips and ideas for creating a successful campaign.

Collecting funds is the most effective way to alleviate hunger in our community. Here’s why:

  • We can turn $1 into more meals! Food Gatherers purchases food below retail prices, so your donated dollar puts more meals on your neighbor’s table than the food you purchase to donate.
  • Financial donations build healthier communities! Non-perishable food items like pasta, rice, and canned goods are a vital part of our distribution, but they are only one part of a healthy, balanced diet. Perishable items including fresh fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, and lean proteins can’t be directly donated through food drives but are vital for healthy lives.
