Tuesday, October 29 at 775 Gastropub in Reno and Wednesday, October 30 at Sparks Great Basin Brewing Company, participants can sign up to hold a food drive and receive everything you need to start a food drive. Both events will be held from 4 – 7 p.m. 775 Gastropub is located at the West side of Meadowood Mall at 5162 Meadowood Mall Circle in Reno, NV 89502.

The logistics of the Food Drive season are costly and time consuming. These kick-off events offer the opportunity to save ($100 per truck load of barrels) and use them to help feed more people.
Interested parties may also sign up for a Virtual Food Drive during these events. The Food Bank of Northern Nevada has as Virtual Food Drive page on their website. This interactive page is one of the simplest ways to hold a food drive. Businesses or organizations will receive a personalized URL for their food drive to track the amount of donations that they are able to raise. The Virtual Food Drive URL can be shared through email, social media and more. Each dollar donated helps to deliver four meals to those who need them.
