Good Sam welcomes the opportunity for civic organizations, school, churches and businesses to become actively engaged in the fight against hunger by coordinating a food drive. Food drives are essential to meet the growing needs of our food-insecure and hungry neighbors and can be held at your place of work, your office, social club, place of worship, school, etc. Food drive events can range from one-day activities to month-long events to year-round collections. The time frame and details are up to you!

Please contact us through and we’ll be happy to help you get started!
