If you are organizing a food drive, it’s important that you do so in conjunction with the West Ohio Food Bank. We can provide advice on food safety, what types of items can be accepted, and what timing makes the most sense for your event. West Ohio Food Bank maintains the highest standards of food safety, which means not every product is suitable for donation. After donations are collected, we sort and inspect all donated items to ensure that they are absolutely safe.
Please follow some simple rules when collecting food.
- Collect only non-perishable food items and personal care items.
- Do not collect any homemade items.
- Please keep personal care items separate from food items (i.e. mouthwash).
- No glass, please! Glass items can chip and break easily in the barrels.
