Community Food Drives
On any given day in North Texas, tens of thousands of families and individuals struggle with food insecurity and hunger. This means that community food and fund drives are needed all year. Workplaces, churches, schools, youth groups and others are encouraged to make a difference and sponsor Food & Fund Drives.
If you are planning a food drive that is only open to people in your school, group or organization, please fill out the Food Drive Registration Form below. If you are planning an event that is open to the public, please fill out our Mutual Marketing Partnership Form below.
