Every morning, dozens of trucks arrive at our Oakland warehouse. They’re filled with fresh fruit, veggies, milk, eggs, bread and much more. By the end of the day, thousands of pounds of food will leave our doors and fill tables and cupboards in our community.
How do we do it?
We partner with more than 200 food pantries, hot-meal programs, senior centers and other non-profits to distribute millions of pounds of food every year. Each of our “partner agencies,” as we call them, has its own mission, tailoring their services to meet the unique needs of the community.
Addressing the immediate nutritional needs of children, adults and seniors is core to our mission, and few organizations meet those needs as efficiently as we do.
To find a location to pick up groceries or a hot meal, community members can call our helpline at (510)-635-3663 or visit FoodNow.net or ComindaAhora.net.
