West Texas Food Bank

Start A Fund or Food Drive

Hosting a Food Drive is a great way to help fight hunger and raise awareness. Getting started is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3…

  1. Fill out the Food Drive Contact form. It is important to let us know you are conducting a food drive so we can help you plan, and answer any questions. Complete the form on this page and a member of our team will contact you.
  2. Create a plan of action. Create a plan for how the food will be collected and delivered to the Food Bank. For large collections, over 250 items, we may be able to pick up the food at a time and day convenient for both parties.
  3. Let everyone know. Share your food drive with your friends and coworkers on social media, or come up with other unique ways to make your food drive a success.

Not sure that a Food Drive is right for you? Conduct a Fund Drive and donate the money directly to the West Texas Food Bank. Every dollar collected equals 4 meals. For more information, fill out the Food Drive Contact form.
