Corporate Partnerships

Find your fit with the Food Bank

Corporate partners play a significant role in our ability to support the 600,000 people who may need emergency food assistance as they are forced to choose between food, pay rent or get their medicine. Cause marketing and sponsorship opportunities provide a valuable way to promote a company's corporate responsibility, their brand, and can be a great way to engage employees while linking your company with a 4-star Charity Navigator rated hunger-relief organization.Finding the Fit happens when the philanthropic and marketing objectives of a potential partner can be met by supporting the Food Bank. This can be accomplished in many ways including:

  • Financial Support – both unrestricted and restricted to our programs
  • Sponsorships 
  • Employee Giving Campaigns
  • Grants and Foundation gifts
  • In-Kind Donations

Stop Summer Hunger Initiative (June-July)

Summer for 300,000 children in the Food Bank's 34-county service area doesn't mean going to camp or to the pool. It means that they won't be at school and will lose access to the free and reduced-cost breakfast or lunch. To support those children and their families, the Food Bank has created the Stop Summer Hunger Initiative presented by our Partners NetApp, and Food Lion Feeds. Invest as a partner and engage employees to help kids, conduct virtual food drives (online fundraising) with company employees, hold a food drive, or arrange a "Drive, Drop & Go" event at your workplace. Opportunities available within each of our branch service territories.

Employee Teambuilding
Client Engagement Opportunities

Several of the Food Bank’s sponsorships and campaigns provide excellent employee teambuilding and client engagement opportunities. Volunteer service with the Food Bank not only can build employee morale and teamwork, but also reinforces the company’s philanthropic commitment to the community. It can also provide an opportunity to engage with clients/customers in the accomplishment of service for those less fortunate.
