The holidays are a busy time for everyone, but they’re especially busy here at the Food Bank. Our demand spikes and we need all the support we can get.
We’re so thankful to all the corporations and local businesses that make donating simple and easy. Whether you’re grabbing groceries, getting a head start on holiday shopping, or kicking off the season with a jog around Lake Merritt – you can support the Food Bank and ensure the 116,000 people we serve each and every month have healthy food this holiday season and beyond.
While you’re shopping for groceries:
Safeway: Through the end of the year, you can nourish a family while shopping at Safeway. Just rip off a ticket to make a donation of $1, $5, or $10. Hand it to your cashier at checkout. All donations will be rolled up to a $10 bag of non-perishable food for local families.
Whole Foods: Bring your reusable bags while shopping at Whole Foods. You’ll have the option at checkout to donate your 5-cent savings to us. Those nickels add up to thousands of meals for our neighbors.
While you’re out and about:
Oakland Turkey Trot: Run to Feed the Town! When you sign up for the Oakland Turkey Trot – you can make a donation to ACCFB. Plus, you’ll receive a finisher’s t-shirt designed by Oaklandish. BONUS: Food Bank friends get 10% off registration fees – enter the code “ACCFB10” when you sign up!
While you’re looking for gifts:
Rigel Stuhmiller: Acclaimed printmaker and illustrator, Rigel Stuhmiller, set a goal of donating 10,000 meals to the Food Bank. She will donate $1 from the sale of every 2019 Farmer’s Market Calendar to ACCFB. And, 5 cents from every item sold will be donated as well!
Sora Designs: Sora Designs created a beautiful line of #ENDHUNGER x Foodie Jewelry and 100 percent of the profits from this collection benefit ACCFB.
Crate&Barrel: From Nov. 1 – Dec. 31, customers can donate online and at the register of Crate and Barrel stores. Crate and Barrel’s goal is to help bring 5 million meals to the table.
Check back here often – we’ll update this list throughout the season.
