Thank you for your interest in hosting a food/fund drive. Your efforts are critical to our operation.
Food drives allow communities to collect non-perishable items for The Food Bank. Most-needed items include canned meat, canned fruits and vegetables, beans, rice, cereal, peanut butter, soup and pasta. Any perishable goods such as fresh produce or bread may be taken directly to your local pantry. We accept wild game, however, it must be processed and labeled by a USDA approved meat processor and kept frozen after processing.
If you plan to collect more than 200 pounds of food, you may request our help with delivery and pick-up of donation barrels. Please complete the food drive form below to begin this process.
If you plan to host a small food drive, you may use sturdy boxes to collect items. At the end of your food drive, please drop off your collections at The Food Bank warehouse, 2101 Vandiver Drive, Columbia, MO.
