Host Your Own Food Drive!

(Oahu Only)

Please note if you are on a neighbor island,
call the Hawaii Foodbank for appropriate contact information.


Many types of organizations, from businesses to churches, schools to clubs, can
help by hosting a Food Drive. Please read through the following information to help
you in planning your Food & Fund Drive to benefit the Hawaii Foodbank.

Register your Community Food Drive

  • Fill out and email the Holiday Event Registration form included in the Community Food Drive
    Packet
    to fooddrive@hawaiifoodbank.org or fax to 836-2272 Attn: KIM. Be sure to fill it out completely so that we can properly assist and credit you for your generous donation!

Get Support

  • Confirm approval from the President, C.E.O. or Board President to participate in the Food Drive.
  • Designate a contact person at your organization. Plan for frequent communication between coordinator and Hawaii Foodbank.

Set Specific Dates & Goals

  • Determine the timeframe and the location for your collections that would be most effective in maximizing participation.
  • Establish an overall goal for the company and/or individual goal for the employees such as: 10 pounds per person or $10 per person is a great way to start!

Generate Enthusiasm & Participation

  • Advertise information throughout your community and/or organization to raise involvement early in the process, by using flyers, email notices, newsletters or the top five most wanted flyer.
  • Talk it up! The grapevine is an excellent way to get the word out. Be creative!
  • Friendly competition among departments or other store locations.

Arrange Collection & Drop-off

  • Arrange an area that is visible in your office for your Food & Fund Drive.  You might decorate boxes as collections bins with colorful flyers or wrapping paper.
  • Recruit fellow employees and company vehicles to drop off your food. If you cannot transport your donations to our warehouse, please call dispatch to arrange for pick up at 836-1972.
  • To ensure proper acknowledgement, place a donation sheet on EVERY box.
  • Unless otherwise instructed, the Hawaii Foodbank will send only one letter of acknowledgement per organization.

If you have any questions or concerns, call our
 Food Drive Coordinator at 836-3600, ext. 240 or fooddrive@hawaiifoodbank.org

We will gladly assist you with the planning of your successful Food Drive!
