What is a Food Drive?
An Annual Food Bank Drive is a charitable event that aims to collect food donations for local food banks, which then distribute the food to people in need. The food drive is typically organized by a community group, charity organization, or business, and it involves collecting non-perishable food items such as canned goods, pasta, rice, and cereal.
The Annual Food Bank Drive is an important event because it provides essential support to people who are struggling to put food on the table. Many families and individuals face food insecurity due to poverty, job loss, illness, or other factors, and the food collected during the drive can help to alleviate some of their struggles. Les Olson IT Partners with the Utah Food Bank for the annual food and funds drive. Les Olson sponsors this vital food and funds drive to replenish the Food Bank’s supplies and funds to serve our community.
Les Olson IT is featuring Cameron Rising for the Food & Fund Drive Kickoff. Bring a donation of at least $20 or a case of canned goods to meet Cameron Rising, the Quarterback of the University of Utah Football Team. Come with your memorabilia for Cameron to sign (limit of 2 items). Register by visiting the QR code below to reserve your place in line to meet Cameron.

Get Involved in Our Community
There are several ways that people can contribute to an Annual Food Bank Drive. They can donate food items, volunteer to help with the collection and sorting of donations or make a monetary donation to the food bank. Businesses can also get involved by supporting their local Food Bank by organizing a food drive or sponsoring an event. Les Olson IT organizes a food and funds drive each year.
The Annual Food Bank Drive is a valuable initiative that brings communities together to support those in need. By working together, we can help to ensure that everyone has access to the basic necessity of food.
