Food Drives

Food donations from the public and our industry partners are vital to our food operations and help us feed our neighbors in need across the Rio Grande Valley.

Food Drives are a fun and simple way for the general public, businesses, and organizations  to give back to the community and help those in need. They are also great for team building and friendly competitions. Food Drives are also one of the most traditional ways to help your Food Bank RGV feed the hungry.

We are GOING GREEN in an effort to encourage everyone to recycle and re-use boxes and save resources.

Please, collect food in small boxes and clean containers that you have. Copy paper sized boxes are ideal because they are small enough to move when filled and great for transport. Any other small boxes will do the job too. Although large boxes look great and hold more cans– you’ll find that once filled they will be almost impossible to move.
