About Us

Alameda County Community Food Bank has achieved notable success in recent years — and is currently responding to an incredible increase in need in our community due to the pandemic and recession. Even with a passionate network of more than 300 agency partners serving more clients — and distributing more food than ever before, we’ve expanded our services even further to meet the growth in need… and we need your help!

With our new strategic plan, we are setting a bold trajectory for the long-term work required to dismantle the systems that perpetuate poverty, including racism. Our staff regularly engage in conversations about race, class, power and privilege as part of our organizational commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.

We’re committed to creating a healthy, prosperous and just community. We invite you to read our Equity & Inclusion Statement.
