Food Donations

Sierra Community House’s Hunger Relief Program depends heavily on the support of the local community. Please know, however, that 60% of all food donations come in during the holiday season/year-end. The increased amount of food donations create logistical challenges to our capacity. Please be patient with us as we process your interest in donating food.

In order to work together more effectively to serve our community, please consider creative options during food drive season.

Virtual Food Drives

Virtual Food Drives are ideal. The food banks have incredible buying power and may be able to do substantially more with your dollar than you. Sierra Community House can provide an entire meal for $2.08! That is substantially less than the cost of purchasing a single item at the grocery store! Complete an application for a Virtual Food Drive.

Traditional Food Drive

If a Traditional Food Drive is your only option, complete that application (below), make arrangements to pick up your barrel and discuss options for returning the food to our warehouse.

  • If you are committed to a Traditional Food Drive, consider a targeted drive. Ask us what we need and consider encouraging your donors to contribute a specific type of item or items.
  • Prior to completing the application for a Traditional Food Drive, please click here and carefully read our Food Donation Guidelines
