Virtual Food Drive
Virtual food and fund drives create an engaging, interactive and fun experience in the fight to end hunger in our community. Virtual food drives allow donors to select most needed, shelf-stable items without having to leave the comfort of their home.
Harry Chapin Food Bank, a member of Feeding America, is the largest hunger-relief organization in Southwest Florida, serving Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties. We rescue food and distribute it through our food distribution programs: Care and Share Senior Feeding Program, Harry’s Helpings, Fulfill Mobile Pantries, In-School Pantries and our Partner Agency Program, which is a network of more than 150 partner agencies to feed families who are hungry. Through these programs, we feed more than a quarter of a million people each month.
Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 39.6 million meals throughout our five-county footprint in 2021. Through our food distribution programs, we supplied nearly 47.6 million pounds of food and other grocery items, an increase of 79% from 2020.
Harry Chapin Food Bank is proud to be named a Blueprint Partner by the Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF), the founding organization of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. Harry Chapin Food Bank is also a United Way partner agency.
