Host a Food Drive

The Capital Area Food Bank receives over a million pounds of nourishing food throughout the year from food drives. Hosting a food drive is a fun and engaging way to fill our distribution center with healthy food donations! Food drives also serve as a way to educate our neighbors about the need in our community. Thank you for helping the Capital Area Food Bank to distribute more meals to children, seniors and families at risk of hunger.
