START A FOOD DRIVE
Move For Hunger can help you organize your own food drive! Let’s work together to fight hunger in your hometown.
There are people who are facing hunger in your community. Hunger exists in every state and county in the United States. Your local food banks, shelters, and soup kitchens rely on the donations they receive from people like you to help keep their shelves stocked. Food drives are also a great way to raise awareness about hunger and inspire others to take action.
40 million Americans are food insecure
1 in 6 children face hunger each day
1 box of donations can provide 25 meals
Move For Hunger has organized more than 5,600 food drives all across the United States and Canada. We’ve helped individuals, schools, community organizations, small businesses, and large companies provide meals for their neighbors in need. Move For Hunger will help you plan & promote your food drive from start to finish, all free of charge.
You’re not going to be doing this on you own. A member of our Events Team will be available to help you every step of the way.
After organizing thousands of food drives, we’ve learned a thing or two. We’ll share our tips & best practices to ensure your food drive is a success.
To help promote your food drive, we will create customized flyers, provide shareable social media images, and contact your local newspapers, TV, and radio stations.
