Thank you for your interest in hosting a canned food drive. We truly appreciate your support as we work to provide 33 million meals annually to our hungry neighbors in the Tri-State area.
Some of the most-needed donations include:
- Canned meat products (tuna, chicken, ham, spaghetti with meatballs, chili with meat and beans, beef stew, etc.)
- Peanut butter
- Canned vegetables and fruits
- Canned soups
- Macaroni and cheese
- Personal care items (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, feminine hygiene products, disposable diapers)
*Please, no glass items
Due to an increased volume in food drives, we can only accommodate delivery and pickups for food drives that require three or more 44-gallon barrels at any one location. Please contact us at least two weeks prior to the start of the event.
Please note that barrel delivery and pickup takes place between 8:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Exact times for delivery and pickup are unavailable, as they are based on our drivers’ schedules for any given day.
