Be a drop-off site!
Richfield, are you ready for a fun challenge to help your neighbors? We are looking for households and businesses in Richfield to be drop-off points for a community-wide Winter Food Drive for VEAP! This food drive is hosted by the Richfield Community Services Commission and Richfield Recreation. You’ll need a covered, weather-proof bin and a "Food Donation Drop-Off" sign (pick up one at the  Community Center or make your own). We will post a map with all of the drop-off sites identified.

Let us know by the end of Monday, November 28, if you'd like to set up a drop-off bin in your yard! Email us at with your name and address. We will publish a list and map on this page with all of the sites (no names will be included).

Have fun with decorating your drop-off point – lights, a snowman, inflatable reindeer – you name it! Selfies and photos are encouraged.

If you have your donation bin outdoors, please check for any canned goods and bring them inside.

  Spread the word! 

If you can, share the food drive info on social media, with community groups you are part of, etc. to help us raise more awareness and donations. 

Follow our progress! Facebook Event Page
