If you’d like to receive food collection barrels, we ask you to commit to collect at least 400 pounds of food (approx. two barrels). We have added this requirement due to our limited resources and the increase in fuel costs.
If you don’t think you will be able to collect 400 pounds, you are welcome to collect food donations in your own containers/boxes and we will pick them up at the end of your drive if you have collected at least 100 pounds of food. If you collect less than 100 pounds, we ask that you deliver the food to either our San Francisco or San Rafael warehouse locations, or one of our drop off locations on this list.
Can you commit to collecting 400 pounds of food? If so, fill out the form.
Please note: the Holidays are a busy time for Food Drives and it may take up to 2 business days for us to confirm your request for barrels. Barrels may take up to a week to be delivered, depending on our food distribution schedules, and the day of your delivery zone.
Scheduling by Zip Code
We deliver, swap and pick up barrels Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., according to zip code. Please check here for your day.
