Virtual Food Drive
Your donation can make an immediate difference in the fight against hunger in central and northern New York.
A virtual food drive is a fast and fun way to donate funds to Food Bank of Central New York online. Our interactive virtual food drive allows you to see just how far your dollar can go! Not part of a group or organization or just looking for a fun way to donate? Click on the "Shop Now" button below to visit our public virtual drive.
Here is why your donation goes further through a virtual food drive.
Food Bank of Central New York has the power to purchase nutritious food at wholesale prices and at deep discounts through local and national wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and farmers. That coupled with our efficient distribution model, a gift made through the Virtual Food Drive will provide more food than through a traditional food drive, doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can purchase at a regular grocery store. Every dollar raised through this virtual food drive will be used to buy nutritious food for our hungry neighbors.
How is this possible?
Because we are acquiring food on such a large scale — more than 16 million pounds each year — we can achieve savings that the average shopper cannot. At the Food Bank, 96 cents of every dollar goes directly to hunger relief, so you can trust us to make your charitable gifts help the most people possible.
For every dollar donated here, Food Bank of Central New York can provide 3.5 meals!
