Cause Marketing

Creating a cause marketing campaign is a simple and effective way to support the Food Bank. You can collect funds from your customers and staff, provide critical support for our hunger relief efforts, and promote your business. The Food Bank works closely with partners to provide campaign collateral and marketing support for cause marketing campaigns.


There are many ways to engage your customers and the community in the fight to end hunger. Here are some examples of successful partnerships:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts locations sold icons in-store for $1 each and raised more than $106,000 in a month.
  • Breadsmith of Lakewood donates nearly $8,000 a year through change collections at their register.
  • Dewey’s Pizza made a $5,000 donation after contributing $5 per large pizza sold for a week at 3 locations.
  • H. Jack's Plumbing & Heating Co. donated a portion of proceeds and inspired other local companies to join their campaign, raising over $40,000 to fight hunger.
