How To Donate Food/Funds
When you or your organization make a food donation, you bring hope to a family’s table and benefit your community. Montgomery County Food Bank relies on support from local retailers and wholesalers, community groups, and people like you to help us get food onto the plates of those who need it. The most efficient way to do that is through a monetary donation because for every $1 donated we can provide five meals to struggling families, at-risk seniors, and hungry children. We gladly accept food donations as well. By providing foods that are high fiber, low sugar, and low in sodium, you will enable children, seniors, and families to have the kinds of nutritious meals they need to maintain health.
How to Donate Food/Funds

If your business or office would like to donate food or funds, there are multiple ways you can make a difference.

How do I get collection boxes for a Food Drive?
We have boxes available for pickup at our warehouse at 1 Food For Life Way. If you would like to schedule a pickup time, please complete our Food & Fund Drive form and send to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I schedule a pickup of my donated food?
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 1 Food For Life Way. Our receiving hours are Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Please give the Food Bank at least 48-hour notice for pickup requests.
Can I drop food off at Montgomery County Food Bank?
Yes! If you have a few grocery bags or a few small boxes full of food that you would like to drop off, then you can come to the main entrance of the Montgomery County Food Bank. Hours are Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
What are the Most Needed Items?
To make sure that your food drive provides the most nutritious food possible, our Nutrition Education Department recommends that you apply these guidelines:
- High in fiber, low in sodium, and low in sugar, nonperishable foods. These items are most useful to our member agencies in meeting the nutritional needs of their clients.
- 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.
Where do my donations go?
Montgomery County Food Bank provides meals to families, seniors, and children who lack access to wholesome, nourishing food. We work through a vast network of over 70+ partner agencies, local school districts, and community partners to provide meals to our hungry neighbors in need.
Can I donate by cash, check or credit card?
People usually want to give money if they cannot give food items and that is wonderful! We encourage monetary donations as well. Due to our positive relationships with food industry donors and our large volunteer base, $1 provides five meals to our hungry neighbors. Donate now!
