Food and Fund Drives are a great way to get your company, organization, or group involved in the fight against hunger throughout northern Nevada and northeast California.
We love that so many in our community are ready to rally around our neighbors in need during the holiday season. For many, this means hosting a holiday food drive. View the list of 2019 Public Holiday Food Drives for a list of businesses currently collecting donations on behalf of the Food Bank.
We are so excited for the 27th Annual KTVN Channel 2 Share Your Christmas Drive By Food Drive! This year, the food drive will be held from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Friday, December 13 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, the Governor’s Mansion in Carson City and the Carson Valley Inn in Minden. It is the easiest food drive of all to participate in because we won’t even ask you to get out of your car. Drive up, pop the trunk or let us know where the food is and the helpful volunteers will unload it for you! If you didn’t make it to the store, we take cash donations where every $1 helps us to provide three meals.
Each month, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada helps to feed more than 91,000 neighbors in need in our community, and food and monetary gifts donated by caring community members are a vital part of making that happen.
Food & Fund Drives have played an important role in collecting donations for food banks like Food Bank of Northern Nevada for decades. However, traditional food drives are changing as food pantries and other Food Bank partners continue to seek out fresh, more nutritious food for our neighbors facing hunger.
That’s where the Food Bank’s Virtual Food Drive comes in.
When you host a Virtual Food Drive for Food Bank of Northern Nevada, you are transforming $1 into 3 meals for hungry children, seniors, and families in our community. Better yet, your Virtual Drive will help put fresh foods including produce, dairy and meat, on the tables of those who need it most. The impact is incredible!
Every dollar and every pound of food count, so whether you choose to host a Virtual Food & Fund Drive or want to go the more traditional route, your drive will help us feed those in need right here in our community.
Whether you decide to host a Virtual or Traditional Food & Fund Drive, the first step is the same.
