Spring Harvest Food Drive

A little competition to inspire giving

April 1  - May 15


Let's fill the food bank warehouse, cooler, and shelves with fresh foods and healthy pantry staples! Spring Harvest Food Drive is a fun competition where groups  collect food.


You have from April 1st until May 15th. Feel free to bring in donations throughout that time, but make sure our staff knows it should be counted toward your team's total and for Spring Harvest. The team with the most donation in pounds wins bragging rights for a year, the official traveling trophy to display, and our gratitude for filling the food bank!


Make sure to register your team below, and happy collecting! Email our Community Relations Coordinator if you have questions.
