Organize a Virtual Food Drive

About Virtual Food Drives

Do you want to hold a food drive but lack the necessary storage, transportation or onsite participants for a traditional food drive?

You can still make an impact by creating your very own Virtual Food Drive! It's a fast, fun, easy way for you to help those in need in our community! EPFH can provide the equivalent of seven complete meals for what it would cost you to purchase one can of food.

If you would like to create your own Virtual Food Drive you can:

  • Set a goal and track donations made
  • Share your personalized link with friends, family or coworkers on social media or via email to create awareness and success
  • Start a friendly competition with coworkers, other departments in your company, rival schools, or with your family

Whatever you choose to do, your Virtual Food Drive allows El Pasoans Fighting Hunger to deliver nutritious foods to our hungry neighbors every day. Remember, food makes tomorrow possible. By taking action today, you are helping create fuller lives and better futures!

Benefits to conducting a Virtual Food Drive:

  • We can stretch a dollar a lot further than someone can at a grocery store buying food because of our national and state-wide food sourcing partnerships and bulk orders.
  • We can buy and distribute fresh produce and perishable frozen and refrigerated foods in the exact quantity we need, when we need it. Fresh options are important in order to provide healthier options for our clients.
  • 98% of all donated resources we receive go directly to the community through programs and food distributions.
