Thanks for your interest in hosting a Food and Fund Drive!
What a great way to increase the supply of food and resources to help those in need! Food drives are welcome throughout the year. Your efforts make an enormous difference in the amount and variety of foods we are able to distribute to feed hungry people in Montgomery County.
People usually want to give money if they cannot give food items and that is wonderful! Please encourage monetary donations as well. Due to our positive relationships with food industry donors and our large volunteer base, $1 provides a full day of meals.

Here is a list of frequently asked questions to help you in launching, organizing and running your drive.

How do I get bin/boxes for my drive?

Our food collection bins and packing boxes can be picked up at One Food For Life Way, Conroe, TX 77385. If you would like to schedule a pickup time, please complete our Food Drive Submission Form.

How do I schedule a delivery and/or pickup?

We appreciate it when food can be dropped off at our warehouse. Food pickup becomes cost prohibitive when we schedule small pickups. We ask that if the amount of food collected is less than that which would fit in the back of a pickup truck, please deliver to us at One Food For Life Way, Conroe, TX 77385. Our receiving hours are Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Fridays 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Please give the Food Bank at least 48-hour notice for pickup requests.

Can I drop food off at the food bank?

Yes! Food donations come in all sizes. If you have a few grocery bags or a few small boxes full of food that you’d like to drop off, then you can come to Volunteer Entrance. Reception hours are Monday – Thursday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. You can also drop food donations in the Red Barrels at your neighborhood grocery store.

What are needed most items?

To make sure that your food drive provides the most nutritious food possible, our Nutrition Services Department recommends that you apply these guidelines:
For the safety of those we serve, we do not accept opened items, items with expired dates and homemade items. Please view our Most Needed Items list.
We will accept non-perishable food items that have nutrition labels. If you have any questions about a particular item please contact the food bank.

Where do my donations go?

Montgomery County Food Bank distributes product to over 50 partner agencies throughout the county. MCFB uses monetary donations to assist in purchasing product from other sources.

Can I donate by cash/check/credit card?
