Host a food drive

Food drives have an immediate impact by providing food and meals for those in need, and are a great activity for the community to do together.

What is a food drive?

Food drives and donations help Feeding Westchester, our community partners, and meal programs keep their shelves stocked—and food on the tables of our neighbors—while simultaneously raising awareness about hunger and food insecurity in Westchester, and encouraging others to help.

Individuals, schools, community organizations, and businesses can all host food drives on behalf of Feeding Westchester.

Getting started

Hosting a food drive is simple and only takes a few steps. Here are some helpful tips for planning and holding your food drive.

Decide on your drive

Before you organize your food drive, decide what type you’d like to host—will you be collecting food, funds, or both? Get started by building your own custom fundraiser.

Select dates

Select dates to begin and end your food drive: Food drives can last however long you’d like, but we recommend running your drive for at least two weeks.

Register

After you’ve decided on the type of food drive and have preselected the dates, you’re ready to register your food drive.

Most-needed items

Share the list of our most-needed items with your friends, family, colleagues, and social networks, along with instructions for dropping off their donations. You can collect food in any box available to you, or we can provide you with a food collection bin (300 lb. capacity).

Bins can be picked up Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. at: 200 Clearbrook Road | Elmsford, NY 10523. You must schedule your pick-up time. Please contact us to schedule a collection bin pickup.

Deliver donations

Once your collection is over, please drop off your food donations to Feeding Westchester, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., at: 200 Clearbrook Road | Elmsford, NY 10523.

There is a food collection bin outside of our Volunteer Entrance where you can place your donations. If you need a receipt for your collection, please be sure to schedule your delivery so that we can arrange to have someone meet you, help you unload, and weigh the food you collected.

Projects & Activities

Meals 4 Kids

This is a unique project where local community groups can pack breakfast or lunch bags and raise funds for our network of youth programs across Westchester.​​

Virtual Food Drive

Hosting a virtual food drive with Feeding Westchester is a great way to show the impact your dollars can make. Virtual food drives help you avoid the hassle of organizing an in-person event and having to deliver heavy boxes of food to our warehouse.

Start a fundraiser

People like you are essential to our mission of nourishing our neighbors in the fight against hunger.

As individuals, community groups, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in helping one another, especially when it comes to alleviating hunger. We want to make it easy for you to raise funds and awareness in your own way by giving you the best tools to do so. 

You will not only provide critical funds to help alleviate hunger, but you will also create awareness for the ever-important issue of food insecurity. It’s just another way we—together—can help your neighbors in need.

Get Started

Start an individual or team fundraiser to raise money for the fight against hunger. Once you’ve created a Feeding Westchester fundraiser, you can share the link with your network to spread the word.
