Thanksgiving Food Drive

Thank you for a successful 2023 Thanksgiving food Drive! Check back next summer for our 2024 drive info!

Getting your food drive started is easy.

  • Choose your start and end dates for your food drive. We recommend at least two weeks.
  • Set up a sturdy collection bin.
  • Spread the word to your neighbor! Encourage others to participate by handing out bags to fill with food and return to the collection bin.
  • Click here to host a “Thanksgiving Food Drive”

Continue your support after the food drive!

Start an online fundraiser and encourage those who can’t donate food to make a monetary donation instead.

Gift Cards and Monetary Donations are greatly appreciated. Food store gift cards and checks can be mailed to Rise, P.O. Box 88, Hightstown, NJ 08520.
