Donate Food

Make an impact in your community

Both virtual food drives and food & fund drives aid in providing food to East Tennesseans facing food insecurity. With a virtual food drive, your dollar goes further at Second Harvest’s “store” than at a traditional grocer. With a virtual food drive, you are able to pick which foods you would like to purchase for the food bank. A food & fund drive is a good way to physically see what contribution your school, church, office or other group is making to the food bank.

Virtual Food Drives

Food & Fund Drives

You can make a huge impact on local hunger-relief by conducting food & fund drives at your church, office, school or in your neighborhood. No donation is too small. Your efforts will feed hungry East Tennesseans. Without successful food drives, Second Harvest would not have enough food to feed East Tennesseans facing food insecurity. Food drives give the food bank a larger variety of products and can also supply food items that the food bank cannot afford to buy in bulk quantity. With funds provided through food & fund drives, Second Harvest can turn a $1 donation into three meals.

Ready to get started?  In order to use resources like barrels and brochures, we need to have you scheduled in advance. Please contact FoodDrives to plan the dates of your food drive.
