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, an affiliate of Feeding America, is the leading hunger-relief organization in Southwest Florida. The food bank solicits, collects and stores food for distribution to families and others in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties, providing food to about 28,000 people a week.
For every dollar donated, the food bank can provide $8 in food value. In fiscal year 2018-19, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed nearly 26.7 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $43.2 million, is the equivalent of 22.2 million meals for people in need.
