Food Drives

Organize a Food Drive

Traditional food drives supply non-perishable items that we can share with our network of member agencies. We can help to partner you with a member agency in your area so the food you collect can have an impact on the neighbors in your community struggling with food insecurity.

Get started with your food drive by viewing and downloading our Food Drive Guide, which includes a healthy food donation reference.

Delivering the Food to Connecticut Food Bank

Because Connecticut Food Bank relies on volunteer labor, we consider delivery of the collected food to Connecticut Food Bank as part of your donation. Plan with your team to transport your food drive proceeds to Connecticut Food Bank’s distribution center located at 2 Research Parkway in Wallingford or to one of our member agencies in your community.

Our Wallingford warehouse is open for deliveries Monday through Friday. Click here for directions and hours. Please call to make delivery arrangements before you visit.

We will weigh your donation and provide you with an acknowledgment letter if requested.

Connecticut Food Bank is happy to schedule a pick up for food collections of 500 pounds or more.
