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 420+ 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 latest 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 for all. We invite you to read our Equity & Inclusion Statement.

What do you do at the Food Bank? I oversee the relationships and communications for our Food Recovery Program. The program is special because we are reducing food insecurity while fighting climate change by diverting good food from going to landfill. The Food Recovery Program connects retailers , who have excess food, with our community partners, to make sure food is eaten and not wasted.

What do you look forward to when you come to work? My favorite part about my job is connecting with people that also have a passion for fighting hunger. I work with many great leaders who go above and beyond to advocate for our community.

What’s your favorite part about working at the Food Bank? I love working with a group of people who truly care about their community. I have the most supportive team that helps me navigate challenges and also encourages me to learn more.

What do you do at the Food Bank? Leading the inventory and distribution team to focus on areas that need food throughout Alameda County. Also, develop, manage, and maintain the integrity of the Food Bank’s inventory practices and procedures.

What do you look forward to when you come to work? I’m proactively working with our network agencies, other nonprofit organizations, and government agencies to find food desert areas in Alameda County. This ensures people who live in those areas are fed.

What’s your favorite part about working at the Food Bank? We send food to children, adults, and seniors who live in our community every day to make sure they don’t worry about where their next meal will come from.

What do you do at the Food Bank? I coordinate all the logistics for ACCFB’s direct distribution site, where we give food to about 1,200 families every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We have a team of 30-40 volunteers who assemble mixed produce boxes from 30,000 pounds of bulk produce then load it into cars or carts for clients. Making sure we have the people and the tools to do that safely and efficiently is my job.

What do you look forward to when you come to work? I look forward to moments when people connect with each other – whoever they may be. Working with food evokes memories for everyone and stories emerge. I love when clients tell me what they made with the items they got or are excited to receive a watermelon. I like seeing volunteers laughing about strangely shaped carrots or exchanging waves with kids in cars. We laugh and smile a lot, which makes it fun to be at work.

What’s your favorite part about working at the Food Bank? My favorite thing is the huge scope of work that we do. I work on the team that gives out food, but that alone will not end food insecurity. The food bank has teams working at the issue from all angles. Not only do we give out a lot of food, but we also have staff who delve deep into the politics of food insecurity, reclaim food waste, promote better nutrition in our community, and help our clients access any government benefits they qualify for. And many more things too! It takes a complex organization to solve a complex issue, and we are on the front lines of that work.
