  • Easy and fun: User friendly and interactive the Virtual Food Drive allows users to drag colorful icons to the shopping basket and then check out in a simple and secure web interface.
  • Efficient: The food bank’s leveraged buying power by procuring product in bulk or at wholesale prices can maximize the benefit of each dollar donated.
