Food Drives

Ready to make an impact on your local community?

Hosting a food drive for Second Harvest is a great way to get started! Food drives are one of the primary ways Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee collects food. We rely on food drives organized by individuals, corporations, churches, schools, associations, and more to serve our neighbors facing food insecurity. Our food bank offers options for both traditional and virtual food drives, so that you’re able to join in the fight against hunger no matter where you are!

Interested in making a financial contribution to support food drives directly?

Virtual Food Drive

Create a virtual food drive and collect donations through an online storefront where participants purchase most-needed items for Second Harvest. Or, set up a team fundraiser and ask your group to collect funds for Second Harvest.
