Fall Food Drive 2023

The annual Fall Food Drive—formerly known as Bag-a-Thon—is the biggest food drive of the year at ICS. In addition to collecting pantry staples to stock the Northwest and Mobile Food Banks, the drive brings in seasonal foods that allow ICS clients to enjoy a special holiday meal with their families.

Individual Donation
Bring food donations of any size to an ICS office or other drop-off location. No appointment is necessary.

Group Drive

Perfect for schools, faith communities, workplaces, clubs, neighborhoods, sports teams, scout troops, and more.

  • Use the provided flyers and social media images to collect food as a group throughout October.
  • Drop off one big donation at an ICS location or partner site (like any Edward Jones office in Tucson) by October 31.
  • Send us pictures of your group/donation or let us know when you’re coming to drop off so an ICS representative can take pictures, and we’ll share the photos on social media and tag your organization. #ICSfallfood
