Host A Virtual Food Drive


Most of the food entering Food for Life’s warehouse is rescued, surplus food from farms, distributors and grocery stores. There is enough surplus food in Canada to feed everyone, but getting it into the hands of the community before it spoils is the challenge. At Food for Life, we can take a $10 donation and provide $62.50 worth of groceries to the community. Instead of purchasing food with that $10 donation, we use it to rescue the surplus, making your dollars go even further.

Virtual food drives allow us to do what we do best! Rescue fresh surplus food and get it out to the community! For every $10, we can supply more than 30 pounds of food to a family in need. Your support will help make it possible for us to meet the increased need we see in the community.

How It Works

Step 1

Register your community food drive and click “Fundraise for us” 

Step 2

Create a fundraising page with your story. Add a photo, description and fundraising target goal. Let everyone know why you’ve chosen Food for Life as your charity to support.

Step 3

Begin fundraising! You will have a unique fundraising link that you can share with family, friends and colleagues. They will be able to donate directly through the link, meaning you won’t have to deal with holding cash or keeping track of the donations. The website will tally your total as you go so that you can see your fundraising progress.

Step 4

Share! Share about your virtual food drive on social media. Reach out to Food for Life at for additional supports such as impact stats and more information on the power of rescued food.
