Organize a Food Drive

Food drives are an effective way to support GLFB and each and every item collected makes a difference in the lives of the families, children, individuals, seniors and veterans in our community who are at-risk of going hungry.

Consider organizing a food drive in your neighborhood, at your local school, place of worship, service organization or workplace. You can also hold a Virtual Food Drive for those who prefer to make monetary donations.
