Host a Fundraiser

Proceeds from your fundraising event make a difference in the lives of hungry children, families and seniors in our community. Fundraisers are impactful because each dollar donated to the Food Bank can provide three meals to someone in need.

As the host of a third-party event, you are responsible for the organization, promotion and execution of the event. We will provide the Food Bank’s logo and materials such as, newsletters, brochures, templates, posters, etc. The Food Bank will work to ensure that our supporters are aware of your event through our website and social media networks whenever appropriate.

Virtual Funds Drive

Host a Virtual Funds Drive (also known as a Virtual Food Drive) at your company or organization. Simple and secure, a virtual funds drive is an interactive tool that makes your donation to Food Bank for the Heartland go further. The Food Bank will use the funds to purchase food items that are most needed, including fruits, vegetables, and perishable items such as meat and dairy products.

For every dollar donated to the Food Bank, we can provide three meals. With the Food Bank’s purchasing power and network of wholesale, retail and agricultural donors, we are able to do much more with a monetary donation.

If you have any questions, please contact Jerlyn Swiatlowski.
