Virtual Food Drive
An easy way to provide the most food, right from your computer.
Hosting a virtual food drive saves you the hassle of moving heavy food drive boxes and allows Open Heart Kitchen to save on resources and get the most-needed items for our meal preparation. Let us use our ability to purchase the food we need in bulk to maximize the impact of your generosity.
