Hosting a Food &/or Fund Drive

Hosting a food & fund drive is a great way to support the 417,000 Utahns facing hunger.

Register a Food Drive

Thank you for your interest in hosting a food &/or fund drive to benefit Utah Food Bank. Food drives that collect 500 lbs. or more (the equivalent of a filled SUV or pick-up truck) are eligible for Utah Food Bank transportation services for supplies and food pickup. Please arrange to have your donations ready for pickup in a centralized location on the first floor of your building. If there is a large amount of food, we appreciate having someone from your organization available to assist our driver.

If you have questions about food drive registration, please contact Julie Adams-Chatterley at (801) 887-1266 or fooddrive@utahfoodbank.org. Many of the answers to your questions may be found in our Food Drive FAQs.

Please note: in order to receive supplies or transportation, we require a food drive to be registered one week prior to the start date.

Virtual Food Drive

If you would like to host a fund drive in conjunction with your food drive, please visit our Virtual Food Drive. This makes donating food more convenient than ever and allows you to “shop” for our most-needed items, all without the hassle of a visit to the store. Plus, you get to capitalize on our incredible purchasing power! When you register a Virtual Food Drive, you’ll be able to create a team and invite your friends, family and coworkers to join your effort and watch your impact grow.
