Food Bank of Iowa Virtual Food Drive

About This Campaign

Forget the heavy lifting, donating is just a click away with a Virtual Food Drive! 

In fact, your donation will go further with a virtual food drive and provides a simple and immediate way to help end hunger in Iowa.

What is a Virtual Food Drive?

A Virtual Food Drive is a web-based tool allowing individuals and organizations to host a food drive through Food Bank of Iowa’s website. Donations can be made securely online giving everyone on your team a chance to see the progress in real time. With just a few clicks, anyone can purchase the most-needed items and make a difference in the lives of neighbors in need.

Why use the Virtual Food Drive?

The answer is simple – to get more food to those facing hunger in our community faster. By holding your food drive online, you will save the Food Bank the time and resources incurred through a physical food drive. Plus, your donations will help us purchase more of our most-needed food items in bulk including highly desirable perishable items such as milk and eggs. You give us the resources to purchase the most needed items in the moment as the need arises!

Virtual Food Drives give donors the opportunity to support important programming like School Pantries and the BackPack Program

Campaign to Support Food Bank of Iowa

At the Food Bank of Iowa, we’re dedicated to ending hunger in Iowa—for the children, families, and seniors we serve. With your help, we can.

$0.98 cents of every dollar donated to Food Bank of Iowa supports our food distribution programs. By keeping administrative services expenses (1.45%) low, we can provide 4 meals for every dollar contributed to Food Bank of Iowa.

Together, we can solve hunger.
