Host a Food or Cash Drive

Get together and take action against hunger.

Looking for an engaging and impactful way to give back and make a difference in the lives of those experiencing hunger in our community? Host a food and cash drive with The Food Group! Join with your co-workers, teammates, friends and neighbors, or members of your faith, youth, or community group. Together, you can provide much needed food to those who need it most. The impact is immediate!

Collect cash, healthy foods and much-needed household items for those who need them most.

We’ll give you all the tools you’ll need to organize a drive. We’ll provide promotional materials. And we’ll publicize the impact of your generosity.

Host a Cash Drive

With cash donations, you’ll get the most bang for your buck! The Food Group uses donated dollars to buy high-demand food items at discounted prices. A cash drive can be in-person or virtual. We’ll provide collection boxes or create a secure and convenient giving page on GiveMN. Your supporters can give any amount using their credit or debit card.

Organize a Food Drive

If you’re collecting more than 500 pounds, we can provide bins to collect food donations. We’ll also arrange a time to pick up your donation.

If you collect less than 500 pounds, please use your own collection containers and deliver the food to our warehouse (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at 8501 54th Ave. N, New Hope, MN 55428). Or you can deliver the food directly to your local food shelf.

Make It a Dual Drive!

Offer the opportunity to give food and cash donations. Combining both options makes it easy to participate and encourages greater giving.

Celebrate Your Impact

After your donations are received, we will let you know how many pounds you collected and the number of meals you provided. Then celebrate! Feeding a community takes a community. Thank you for providing food for today and hope for tomorrow.
