Why host a Virtual Food Drive?

Hosting a Virtual Food Drive is fast and easy, and eliminates those extra trips to the grocery store. You can inspire your family and friends to bring awareness to hunger and raise critical funds with just a few clicks of your mouse.

Nearly half a million people in the state of Connecticut are hungry, and 1 out every 6 children is food insecure. Every year, the number of Connecticut residents who rely on the Connecticut Food Bank and its partner food-assistance network grows. Your virtual food drive can make a difference in the lives of families in need across Connecticut.

For every $10 donated to Connecticut Food Bank, we can feed one individual for an entire week.

Starting a Virtual Food Drive is easy!

  1. Choose how you’d like to participate: Start a team, join a team, or hold a virtual food drive as an individual. (Can’t decide? See the About Page or view the VFD Setup Guide for more details.) Personalize your page.
  2. Invite friends, family or coworkers to join!
  3. Once your drive is set up, you and your participants will be able to browse our aisles to see just how much of an impact your gift will make. Add items to your “shopping cart” and “check out” by making your gift!
