Discover Food Drives

Second Harvest feeds more than 250,000 individuals each month through our network of hundreds of community partners distributing food at locations in every city in the county. Starting a food drive is more important than ever as government hunger relief programs are declining and we need to purchase food to close the meal gap. Start a food drive today and join us in our mission to end hunger in Orange County.

Why Start a Virtual Food Drive?

Your donation can provide even more food when you start a Virtual Food Drive. Every $1 dollar you donate, helps Second Harvest provide the equivalent of 3 meals. And we will leverage your donation even more by purchasing perishable food at discounted prices from the California Association of Food Bank's Farm to Family and other bulk purchasing programs.

Virtual Food Drives are:

  • Easy: Registering your Virtual Food Drive is as easy as 1-2-3! Making a donation is simple and secure.
  • Convenient: With your Virtual Food Drive link, anyone can participate. Virtual Food Drives are accessible to all employees including off-site workers.
  • Fun to use: When you register, you'll receive you own web page. Create teams, invite your friends, family and co-workers to join you.
  • Track your results: You will have access to full reporting capabilities so that you can track and share the progress and success of your campaign.
  • Traditional Food Drives

    Your traditional food drive doesn't just help us feed those who are struggling with hunger, you'll be helping us spread awareness and bring attention to hunger and hunger-related issues in our community. Everything you need to know about your traditional food drive can be found here.

    Where do traditional food drive donations go?
