Student Projects

Thank you for your interest in learning more about our work. We are so glad that so many students are eager to understand the Food Bank’s mission, and have chosen to study food insecurity and poverty in our community.

We aim to accommodate as many student projects as possible. However, as a busy non-profit, we are often working with limited staff resources, and don’t always have the time to grant project requests.

Before reaching out to us for an interview or other requests, please consider these alternative ways of learning about our work.

  • Sign up for a volunteer shift. Our three-hour volunteer shifts always include a tour, information about our work, and plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Plus, you’ll be helping sort fresh food for our community.
  • Attend a volunteer orientation. Our orientations, which take place every Wednesday at 12:45 pm, also include lots of information about how the Food Bank works, and there is ample opportunity to ask questions about our organization.
  • Check out our publications page. Our annual reports, impact reports, and newsletters ample information about our work and about hunger in the Bay Area. You can also learn from our “By the Numbers” page.

If you need additional information, please complete this student project request form and email it to media@accfb.org. Please note that we check requests once a week, and need at least two to three weeks before a deadline to accommodate interview requests. (The more time the better!)

Thanks again for your interest in our work! We look forward to meeting you.
