Why fundraise?

The very best way to raise food for the Central Texas Food Bank is to host a fundraiser. The funds you raise go further at the Food Bank. You might be able to buy 10 cans of food at the grocery store for $10. That’s about eight meals. But through our economies of scale and food donor relationships, the Food Bank can source 40 meals worth of food with the same $10.

Food Purchase Comparison

  • You’re helping more people. The Food Bank uses your dollars to provide far more meals than you can buy at the store – about five times as many meals!
  • You don’t have to store collected food or transport heavy boxes to us. Not only do Virtual Food Drives raise more meals, but they’re also easier for you. Your meals will be raised virtually on a customizable online fundraising page.
  • Your dollars are flexible. The Food Bank will put the funds you raise toward the area of greatest need.
  • You get your friends, family and coworkers involved. Create a competitive team-builder for your office, celebrate a special event or honor a loved one through your drive.
  • You can get as creative as you want. Incorporate a giveaway, 5k race, costume contest, dunking booth or catapult build – we’ve seen it all and we’re here to support you with creative ideas.
