Last updated on April 7, 2014

To alleviate hunger by providing nutritious food and nutrition education to people in need, educating the public, and promoting public policies that address hunger and its root causes.

Description:
Since 1985, the Alameda County Community Food Bank has helped people in need of food. As Alameda County's central clearinghouse for donated food, the Food Bank distributed approximately 11 million pounds of food in the fiscal year June 30, 2005. In turn, the Food Bank's network of 300 community based organizations provided food assistance to over 120,000 individuals each month, including adults, children, the elderly, people with disabilities, abuse survivors, people living with AIDS, and the homeless.

In addition to food distribution, the Food Bank educates the community about the causes of hunger and poverty, advocates for policies that would improve the lives of low-income people, and operates a food referral helpline (800/870-3663).
