Virtual Food Drive

What is a
Virtual Food Drive?

Our Virtual Food Drive makes it easy to directly support the San Diego Food Bank. Nowhere to display red barrels and collect canned food? No problem! Donors can make monetary donations through a custom donation page to fund the Food Bank’s general operations and food purchasing. 

Easily donate through your custom donation page or Online Store. Our virtual options provide flexibility in how supporters can contribute to our mission of providing hunger-relief to individuals and families in need.  

Why use the
Virtual Food Drive?

The answer is simple – to get more food to those facing hunger in our community faster!

By hosting a Virtual Food Drive, you will save the Food Bank the time and resources incurred through a physical food drive. With every dollar, the Food Bank can provide two meals.

Your donations will help us purchase more of our most-needed food items in bulk such as canned meats, canned vegetables, canned fruits, peanut butter, oatmeal and cereal.

Who can set up a Virtual Food Drive?

Anyone can host a Virtual Food Drive! Many of our corporate and foundation partners create “customized” Virtual Food Drives that incorporate their logo, employee matches, and conduct competitions between departments.
Some individual donors go the extra mile by using our Virtual Food Drive tool to create their own fundraising events around special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, bar or bat mitzvahs. Once we provide you with the link, share it with co-workers, subscribers, friends and family to help you reach your goal!

There are two different ways to host a Virtual Food Drive
