Our annual, family-oriented event is just around the corner! Join us for a delightful evening of art, nourishment and advocacy as we help fill empty bowls in our community. Enjoy a simple and delicious meal of soup and bread, bid in the silent auction and tap your toes to rousing children’s entertainment.
This year’s event is hosted by CBS 5's Liam Mayclem. Liam is an Emmy award-winning host and a producer for CBS 5 TV’s Eye on The Bay.
As a reminder of the empty bowls on the tables of families in need throughout Alameda County, you’ll also take home a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted bowl created by local school children and Food Bank supporters. This annual event educates kids and adults about the issue of hunger, teaches them about community service and raises funds for the Food Bank’s hunger-relief efforts.
The Alameda County Community Food Bank serves 49,000 people each week—from Berkeley to Fremont, Oakland to Livermore. With demand for emergency food at all-time high, your support is needed to ensure our neighbors have the food they need all year round!
Help the Food Bank stock its shelves with high-demand non-perishable items by starting a traditional barrel drive.
Or start a Virtual Food Drive and see the Food Bank's buying power in action -- for every $1 you donate we distribute $4 worth of food!
Your support provides food—and hope—to 1 in 6 Alameda County residents.
We won't let our seniors go hungry.
No one should suffer from hunger in their golden years -- yet thousands of seniors turn to the Food Bank to meet their most basic need. Watch to see how the Alameda County Community Food Bank and our member agencies are working to ensure that everyone has access to fresh, healthy food.
"You barely break even."
Jandel's dad works as much as he can. Mom stays home to care for the children -- her wages wouldn't cover the cost of day care. And they struggle.
With a tight budget and bills to pay, something has to give. That's why 3-year-old Jandel needs you.
Your contributions -- time, money, food drive donations and advocacy -- ensure Jandel doesn't need to worry about what's for dinner.
