Virtual Food Drive

An easy way to provide the most food, right from your computer

Everything is easier when you do it online and the same is true for food drives.

Hosting a virtual food drive saves you the hassle of moving heavy food drive boxes and allows Food Lifeline to save on resources and get the most-needed items to hungry people. And because of our unparalleled efficiency, Food Lifeline is able to provide four complete meals for what it would cost you to purchase one can of food.

Hosting a virtual food drive is easy and well suited for individuals, companies, and community groups alike.  

Choose the best virtual food drive option:

  1. Join the current challenge: Every quarter Food Lifeline launches a new virtual food drive challenge to address a pressing need in our mission to stop hunger. Please join our Holiday Meals Challenge.
  2. Birthdays, weddings and more: Commemorate a significant moment in your life and use it to raise funds for something you care about - ending hunger. We’ve partnered with CrowdRise to make it easy for you to launch a virtual food drive and rally your friends to give. Just go to and choose ‘Fundraise for this charity’ to start your own virtual drive.
  3. Corporate food drives: Highlight your company's commitment to helping the community by hosting a branded, virtual food drive. Register your drive under your company’s name and publicize it via your social media and other marketing channels. Leading local companies, such as BECU, Lane Powell, Les Schwab and more have successfully hosted virtual food drives with Food Lifeline. Simply go to and choose ‘Fundraise for this charity’ to launch your own drive.

Remember, even if you’re hosting a traditional canned food drive you can easily add to it with a virtual food drive.
