Every May, law firms and members of the legal community come together for a friendly competition — Food From The Bar — to help end summer hunger for children in Alameda County.

Food From The Bar comes at a critical time. Families who receive free and reduced-price meals at school are faced with a meal gap once school is out. Your participation directly supports local families facing hunger — this summer and year-round. And, joining is easy!

Here’s how you can help:

“Every day seniors, adults and children live in hunger having no idea when they will get their next meal. For thousands of our children, their only guaranteed meal comes from their school lunches. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office is dedicated to ending hunger for all members of our community. Through our partnership with Food From The Bar and the Alameda County Community Food Bank, we are able to feed thousands of people who would otherwise go hungry. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office will not stop until everyone in our community has food on their table.”

Alameda County District Attorney

“Now more than ever we value the Alameda County Community Food Bank as a partner in providing the critical safety net for low-income residents of Alameda County.”
