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.
Each month, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada helps to feed more than 92,000 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.

We are officially getting ready to kick off the Holiday Food Drive Season.
Join us in the southeast parking lot at Grand Sierra Resort on Thursday, November 1 to pick up your barrels and be ready to start gathering food the very next day. The process is easy and participating in the kick-off helps us save precious resources.
First, sign up on-line to do your food drive. Fill out the Food Drive form, letting us know that you plan to pick up your barrel at the kick-off event. Then, just drop by between 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., and we’ll load the barrels or boxes into your vehicle for you!
