Whether as a company, a group or an organization food drives are the backbone of The Seagate Food Backs efforts and a great way to increase the supply of food and resources to help those in need! Food drives are welcome throughout the year. Your efforts make an enormous difference in the amount and variety of foods we are able to distribute to feed hungry people in our service area.
A tough economy and high unemployment have pushed demand for emergency food to record levels, making community support more important than ever. A huge thank you to the hundreds of schools, offices, faith-based groups and others who organize food and fund drives.
Your efforts make a big difference for the more than 48,000 people each month who eat meals from emergency food boxes.
Both food and funds matter
Cash donations keep our freezers running and our trucks on the road. They also support our innovative programs to address the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education. Monetary donations also allow Seagate Food Bank to purchase bulk food to be repacked by volunteers. Because we make large, bulk purchases, our cost per pound of food is far lower than that of food bought at retail prices by individuals.
Food drives provide some of the healthiest and highest-quality food Seaget Food Bank receives. Food donations provide a link between you, the donor, and people who are hungry.
