Host a Drive

By hosting a drive, you’ll help get more food into the homes of our neighbors while raising awareness about local food insecurity. Raising funds and donating food to Second Harvest Foodbank advances our vision, ensuring that everyone in our community has enough nutritious food to thrive. We’re grateful for the support of businesses, schools, congregations, organizations, and individuals who partner with us to end hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.

Be a Fundraiser

Fund drives allow us to support more people, more efficiently. Each $10 donation can provide up to 25 meals for our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. Host a fund drive to honor a loved one, celebrate a milestone in your life, or bring a group together to support our shared community. The funds you raise help provide fresh, nutritious foods like produce, dairy, and protein that cannot be collected during a traditional food drive.

  1. Set up your team and challenge your family, friends, and colleagues to donate.
  2. Track your progress, set goals, and manage your virtual giving page.
  3. Share your progress to encourage ongoing engagement and meet your goal!
