Event Details

Your Goals

To give you an idea, a large food collection bin holds about 300 pounds of food. Two full plastic grocery bags hold about 25 pounds of food.

How can we help?

We can arrange pick ups for collections of 300 pounds or more.

Each bin holds 300 pounds, so please request the appropriate number of bins. A single bin will fit in the backseat of a car, so if you're able to pick it up, we appreciate your help in saving resources.

Pick-ups are available for drives that raise more than 300 pounds of food. If possible, we would appreciate organizers delivering food directly to Burlington Food Bank or to your local fire hall - this will help us save resources.
