Localised food drives are the main source of stock for all Community Food Banks. We know from experience that the face to face approach always works best and we need local volunteers to help us establish these drives in your area.

A food drive can take place in many different places;

  • Supermarkets
  • Local Shops
  • Places of worship
  • Local industry
  • Schools
  • Scouts etc.

If you are interested in learning more about holding community food drive and would like information on how to set one up and a resource pack contact below:

All packs include marketing equipment to promote the event such as posters leaflets etc. and will be tailor maid to meet your local need. We even have a new Food Bank Bin which can be left as a donation point without the need for constant supervision.
