If you need only 1 or 2 barrels, consider collecting food in your own containers. Download posters from our website. We will pick up the food at the end of your drive. To choose this option, enter 0 (zero) barrels above. In the Delivery Instructions box, indicate you will use your own container and do not need delivery.

Step 3: Start your Food Drive
There are two options for getting empty food-collection barrels to your site. Whichever method you choose to receive your barrels, at the end of your drive we will pick up your full barrels within a five-day window from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  1. Grab and Go will call sites: Start your food drive today by picking up empty food barrels from one of our seven will-call locations shown in the drop-down menu below. This option saves our drivers precious time and the cost of fuel this busy holiday season.  If you select Grab and Go will call sites you must still complete and submit this registration. Your “Grab and Go will call sites” confirmation is not complete until your click “Submit” at the end of the form.
