Food and Fund Drives are a great way to partner with the Arkansas Foodbank in helping us be a community that is united to fight hunger.

 

Food and Fund Drive Guide

Holding a Food Drive

  • We have a list of our most needed items that are available on our website or by contacting our Community Development Coordinator.
  • Get your Food Drive registered with the Foodbank by calling our Community Development Coordinator.
  • Get supplies you’ll need from the Foodbank. We have boxes, collection barrels and large totes.

Spreading the Word

  • Tell people about your Food Drive on Social Media.
  • Send out emails to co-workers, family and friends.
  • Make flyers to put on your collection boxes or barrels.

Add in a Fund Drive Component

  • For every $1 donated to the Foodbank, we can provide food for 5 meals.
  • You can do a virtual Food Drive set up by the Foodbank with your very own donation page to share with your friends and family.  Click here to start your fund drive today!
  • You can create a Facebook Fundraiser for the Foodbank in conjunction with your food drive.

Delivering Your Food Drive

  • Food pickup becomes cost prohibitive when we schedule small pickups. Only Food Drives over 500 pounds (or 500 cans of food) will be picked up by the Foodbank.
  • To drop off your Food Drive, simply contact Sherri Jones to set up a delivery time.
  • Our Warehouse is open for deliveries from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm-3:30 pm Monday – Friday.
  • Our Warehouse staff will assist you in unloading your Food Drive once you arrive.
