Hosting a Food Drive
Over 50% of all of the food that is handed out at Rio Vista Center is received from food drives in local churches, schools, and other organizations.  Hosting a food drive is easy! 

Step 1: Choose a Format

  • One Day Food Drive
  • Holiday Food Drive
  • Competition Food Drive
  • Single Item Food Drive

Step 2: Coordinate Dates
Please contact Aaron Norwood to have your food drive put on the calendar. . 

Step 3: Printed Material and Collection

We can provide printed materials and collection containers to make your food drive as successful as possible. If you would like printed materials and collection containers please contact us 4-6 weeks prior to your desired food drive date. Contact us to make arrangements.

Step 4: Drop Off

Due to cost of fuel and our small staff we ask you to drop the food off at our location at 1431 E. Southern Avenue in South Phoenix.  We have enclosed trailers available for use in drop off. 

If pickup is needed please schedule this with us and we will do our best to accommodate your desired pickup date.
