The Second Harvest Food Bank virtual food drive is a representational web-based tool that allows individuals and organizations to hold an online food drive. While we love donations in any form, our virtual food drive allows us to serve more clients, more efficiently. It's fast, easy and fun!

Anyone can host a virtual food drive! You can register as an individual or you can start your own team. If you are extra competitive, you can join a team. Your drive can be customized to meet the needs of your organization, your church group, your family, or yourself.
