Host a Food Drive

Virtual Food Drive

Help feed our hungry neighbors by hosting a Virtual Food Drive! Instead of lugging cans or boxes around, a Virtual Food Drive is an easy way to support Marylanders in need by doing the shopping — virtually.

In just a few clicks, you can raise critical funds that go toward the purchase of our most-needed items at wholesale prices, stretching your dollar much further than you could at the grocery store. It’s you’re chance to make a difference!
