It’s Time for Food Drive 2.0
More people do it each year than watch the SuperBowl – they donate canned goods to food drives to help people facing hunger.
The most popular form of giving in the US is getting a makeover and the #GiveHealthy Movement is leading the way.
It’s now possible to donate fresh fruits, fresh vegetables
and other healthy food!
Why healthy food matters.
The numbers tell the story …
High rates of food insecurity and high rates of diet related health issues are no joke. They’re no coincidence, either. You are what you eat. If you are struggling with hunger, you eat what’s available. You eat what’s been donated.
Healthier food donations = healthier kids, healthier people.

How it works.
The #GiveHealthy digital food drive platform makes sponsoring a food drive a breeze and makes it super easy for people to donate the right kind of food.
Donate by purchasing curated healthy food items via a standard e-commerce transaction. After a #GiveHealthy drive is over, your donation gets delivered directly to your favorite food bank or food pantry.
Are you a company, a school, a civic or faith-based organization? A team? You can sponsor your own #GiveHealthy drive to support your local food bank or pantry.
