TOTAL CAMPAIGN DONATIONS:
Hardee Help Center Drive Out Hunger Campaign places the power to make a meaningful difference in the fight to end hunger directly with our Campaign Sponsors, and in your hands. The efforts of everyone involved make a huge difference in the amount and variety of foods we're able to distribute.
Anyone can host a Drive Out Hunger Food Drive.
Each drive can be custom-made to fit your needs and abilities, whether it’s hosted by you, your family, a large corporation or small church group. You set the goal and the duration. You provide the location and imagination. Hardee Help Center supplies everything else you need to help provide food to Hardee County families.
The best place to start is to register your drive by clicking on “Start a Drive."

What are the most needed food items?
Although cash donations are the easiest and most efficient way to donate, we appreciate each and every food donation as well. Our Most Needed Items are meat and protein, canned fruits and vegetables, complete meals, grains, personal hygiene items, and cleaning supplies.
