Local Pantry and Virtual Food Drives

Anyone can host a food or fund drive.

Each drive can be customized to your organization’s abilities, whether you’re a large corporation or a small church group. Whether you raise funds online or collect food for your local pantry, you will make a difference!

Food Drives for Your Local Pantry

Thank you for your request to host a food or fund drive. Everyone can make a difference in the fight against hunger in Maine.

Food drives are a great way to collect a variety of in-demand foods for your local food pantry. No donation is too small and every food gift is welcome.

    Virtual Food Drives

    Now you can easily organize a fundraiser to support Good Shepherd Food Bank right from your computer! Share your Virtual Food Drive with family and friends to help raise critical funds needed to feed families struggling with hunger throughout our state.

    Anyone Can Create a Virtual Food Drive

    Each drive can be custom-made to fit your goals, whether it’s hosted by you, your company or a school or church group. You set the fundraising goal and find creative ways to share your Virtual Food Drive. Good Shepherd Food Bank tracks your progress and puts your donations to use by feeding our neighbors in need.

    • The virtual drive allows us to lower our costs because there are no transportation costs or volunteer hours needed.
    • It saves you the inconvenience of organizing an in-person event and moving heavy boxes.
    • The Food Bank can use the donations to purchase foods that traditional food drives do not bring in, such as perishable items like fresh produce.
