Looking for a location across northwest Missouri or northeast Kansas to deliver donated food? You have several options, and on behalf of the families we serve, thank you for helping us carry out our mission.
Interested in a food drive? Food drives are an important part of how we fight hunger in the Second Harvest service area. We welcome the involvement of your organization in helping us stock local food pantries for Second Harvest and our partners. Last year, nearly 200,000 pounds of food was donated via food drives. If your organization would like to host a food drive, contact Michelle Fagerstone at 816-364-3663.


Food barrels:

These are specially-marked barrels located at grocery stores or other locations where you can drop in food items. We are always in need of protein sources, like peanut butter, canned soups or stews and canned fish.

Businesses and organizations who collect food:

Many area businesses or organizations collect food throughout the region.

Deliver food directly to the Second Harvest Community Food Bank:

You are welcome to stop by our central office in St. Joseph, Mo., to deliver food during normal business hours. If you have a large donation, please notify us so we can assist you with unloading! While you’re here, please take a tour of our facility and meet our team.

Give to the Virtual Food Drive:  You can select items to help nourish families, add them to your cart, and checkout and pay online. Host your own online Virtual Food Drive today!
