Organizing a food drive can be as simple as placing a box or bin at your place of work and letting your coworkers know about the collection.

The food can be delivered to Food for Others’ warehouse:

 2938 Prosperity Avenue, Fairfax, VA 22031

M-F 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

Loading Dock 2.

During the busy fall season, we receive a high volume of food donations. There may be a short wait at the loading dock for those dropping off food. We appreciate your patience.

For more information, please read our Food Drive Planning Kits.


We offer three separate Food Drive planning kits

General Food Drive Planning Kit
This planning kit outlines all the information you will need to conduct a food drive in your neighborhood, with family and friends, or through your organization.

Work Place Food Drive Planning Kit
This planning kit will help you plan a food drive in your work place. It contains flyers for collection boxes, most needed item lists for distribution, etc.

Power Pack Program (P3) Food Drive Kit
If you would like to collect food or assemble Power Packs with friends or co-workers, this kit will assist you in accomplishing that goal!  Power Packs are distributed to elementary school students who are in need of supplemental food on the weekends.  Packs consist of a one gallon Ziploc bag filled with 2 breakfast items, 2 lunch items, 2 dinner items, snacks, and drinks.
