HOLDING A FOOD DRIVE OR FUNDRAISER
Welcome to your headquarters for all things food drives and fundraisers! To help ensure that volunteer food and fundraising events are successful, concurrent with Food Finders Food Bank’s branding, public image and to make best use of our limited staff resources, we ask that you review third party fundraiser agreement at the bottom of this page, fill out the drive contact form in the Food Drive Planning Kit and send marketing materials to FFFB at least two (2) weeks prior to your event for approval.
Picking up food & fund drive materials: We ask that food and fund drive materials be picked up by drive coordinators (or drive helpers) from the Food Finders warehouse. The food bank is happy to provide collection boxes (banana boxes) and signage for your drive, along with other materials as appropriate. Please contact our office at 765-471-0062 if you would like to schedule a time to pick up these materials. Additionally, printable materials are available on this page if you do not want to stop by the food bank. Download a copy of our Food Drive Planning Kit.
Download Our Logo: Please contact Food Finders before including our logo on your marketing materials.
***If you need the Food Finders logo in another format, please contact us at email@example.com.***
Qualifying for FFFB pick up: In order to best serve our agencies and to keep our trucking schedule on time, Food Finders is unable to pick up any food donations smaller than ~500 lbs. (approximately 10 banana boxes filled). If your drive yields less than that amount we ask that you drop your donation off during warehouse hours — 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday. The warehouse is best equipped to handle and process your food donation. If your drive qualifies for a pick up by Food Finders, please contact our office to schedule a pickup at 765-471-0062.
