Annual Spring Corporate Food Drive Helps Families in Need

Friendly Competition is Win-Win for All!

It’s time to empty the pantry and help fill the shelves at The Hunger Coalition! Every spring, local businesses team up to bring much needed non-perishable food and cash donations to The Hunger Coalition during their annual Spring Corporate Food Drive.  Vying for the coveted Golden Can Award for most pounds of food and/or money collected, these community-minded businesses build terrific in-house teamwork while reaching out to family, friends and colleagues for non-perishable food and cash donations.

2013 Spring Corporate Food Drive participants include:  Sun Valley Resort, POWER Engineers, St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center, Idaho Mountain Express, Wood River High School, Zenergy at Thunderspring, Webb Landscape and Marketron.

The Hunger Coalition is facing the Hunger Season, when need is at its highest and food donations plummet, leaving people at risk of going hungry.  The Spring Corporate Food Drive is a critical event for refilling empty warehouse shelves.  By contributing to one of the businesses listed above you can make a difference in the health and well-being of Blaine County.

You can also participate from the comfort of your own home.  Simply click here to  and make a financial contribution in the name of a participating business.  Thanks to partnerships with local and statewide food distributors, your dollars are stretched over six times farther than if you were to purchase the food yourself!

The most needed food items include canned fruits and vegetables, hot and cold cereal, canned tuna and healthy snacks for kids. Visit our Give Food page for a complete list.

Support local businesses and organizations from April 1st – 12th as they join together to bring wholesome food, welcome hope, and vital support services to families by participating in The Hunger Coalition’s Annual Spring Corporate Food Drive.

The Hunger Coalition strives to end hunger in our community by providing wholesome food to those in need and by promoting solutions to the underlying causes of hunger through collaboration, education and advocacy. For more information, visit www.thehungercoalition.org.
