Organize a Fund Drive
Gather your friends, co-workers, civic group, church or school and pool your funds to help The Foodbank. For every dollar donated to The Foodbank, we can provide food for four meals.
Fight hunger with a click from your computer.
No trips to the store to stock up on non-perishables. No lifting, carting, bagging, rebagging, transporting to collection location — you get the picture! You donate from your computer. It’s convenient, easy and secure.
Use our purchasing power to maximize your contribution.
Donations are pooled so we can purchase at the lowest possible price. Your donation helps put greater variety, more nutritional balance and larger quantities of products in the hands of those who need it most. In fact, for every dollar you donate, The Foodbank can provide food for four meals to the community.

Hunger decreases development in children, hinders student performance and behavior, decreases attendance, and increases health problems.
16.60% or 27,120 children in our service area are food insecure.
The Foodbank distributed over 16 million pounds of food last year-that’s more than 37,000 meals served every day right here in Montgomery, Greene, and Preble counties.
Plenty of people working full time are still not able to earn enough to keep hunger out of their homes… the average Ohioan working a minimum wage job earns just $15,080.
In our tri-county service area, nearly 89,000 people live with intermittent hunger – 27,120 of these are children.
The Foodbank serves more than 843,000 people annually and provides more than 93,000 meals to kids through its Kids Café®.
Organize a Canned Food Drive
We want to do a food drive!
You may want to consider the following:
Make sure to include the following information in your publicity materials:
- Theme of the food drive
- Dates of the food drive
- Location of collection sites
- The phrase “All non-perishable foods accepted”
- Name, logo and brief description of The Foodbank. Contact The Foodbank if you need any print (brochures) or logo materials.
Develop a fun slogan and theme for your food drive.
Here are a few examples:
- Allow casual dress for those donating food
- Hold a carry-in lunch where admission is cans of food
- Provide each employee with an empty bag to fill and return
- Hold an intra- or inter-company competition with prizes for most food collected
- Hold a raffle. Tickets are acquired with food or cash donations
- Ask your company to match donated food (i.e., for each 100 lbs. collected, the company will donate $100)
