Food & Fund Drives – Hosting a food or fund drive in your community is an enriching way to give back to your community and alleviate hunger in Northwest Indiana.

Interested in hosting a food drive through your company, group or neighborhood? We can help get you started. Fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch!

Consider hosting a fund drive by collecting monetary donations. Thanks to our organizational purchasing power, we can acquire a lot more food for every dollar donated than you can buy at the store.

Retail Food Donations – Did you know nearly 60% of the food acquired for distribution comes from donations?

Food manufacturers, processors, wholesalers, distributors, and farmers can donate surplus food to the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana. By making a donation to the Food Bank, these companies can keep quality food out of landfills, save on disposal fees, and feed our hungry neighbors. The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donor Act of 1996 protects companies, farmers, and even schools when making a donation to a food bank.

Food collected via food drives and surplus food from retailers supports our programs greatly.  To make food donations please read below:

Food donations that can fit in your vehicle please bring them directly to Door C, Monday – Thursday 8:30am – 3:30pm and on Friday 8:30am – 12:30pm.

For large donations that you cannot drop-off, the Operations Team at the Food Bank can arrange a donation pick-up. Contact Danielle O’Leary, Product Sourcing Coordinator for more information at or 219.980.1777 x 320.

Thank you for your interest in providing food donatiosn
