Food drives are a great way for a community to join together for a common cause. We believe that food drives not only help stock the shelves of the food pantries in the Access Pantry Network, but also educate people about the importance of volunteering.
Access of West Michigan coordinates two large annual food drives, including Food for Families in June and County Wide Food Drive in October. Smaller food drives are held at various schools, congregations, businesses and agencies throughout the year.
