Host A Focused Food Drive
To support the health of our clients, the GVFB is currently accepting the following food donations: pasta and low sodium canned salmon (the latter is a key ingredient in our children’s programs!). Of course, monetary donations are always welcome, and actually go farther with our buying power than food donations from the public.

What is the difference between
a food drive and a virtual food
Focused Food Drive
To support the health of our clients, the GVFB is currently accepting the following food donations: pasta and low sodium canned salmon (the latter is a key ingredient in our children’s programs!). Remember, for each dollar you spend, the GVFB can double your impact – and our purchasing power allows us to buy products in bulk, which is much more efficient than sorting individual non-perishable items that are donated!
A Virtual Food Drive
This option is perfect for busy professionals and companies. First set up a branded page on our Virtual Food Drive website, and you can start collecting online donations by simply sharing a customized URL with your personalized blurb and image. Ask your employer to match your donation to double your impact! We have fundraising specialists in-house to support your fundraiser every step of the way.
These toolkits have everything you need to run a successful fundraiser!
