Welcome to Food From The Bar!

Every May, law firms and members of the legal community come together for a friendly competition — Food From The Bar — to help those who struggle with hunger during the summer months in Alameda County.

Food From The Bar comes at a critical time for our community, especially as families and their children face these challenging times. Your support will help us keep our food inventory robust for the summer.

Joining is easy and, thanks to Everlaw, your donations will be matched up to $ 10,000! Register here.

Within 2 business days after you have submitted your registration form, you will find your team’s account here. Make sure to share your team’s link with your colleagues, vendors, professional network, family and friends. All donations made under your team’s name count toward your team’s goal!

Here’s how you can help:

“Community” means all of us who live, work and play in Alameda County. The COVID pandemic has devastated the stability of many more families and added to the need the Food Bank is called upon to fill. Increasingly, too many members of our community don’t know from where their next meal will come. Schools have closed and that has added to the number of children who go hungry. Gratefully, Alameda County Community Food Bank is open for them. We, as community, can do our part, which will save lives. Please join me in supporting the Food Bank through Food from the Bar – and ensuring every child and family has healthy food each day.”
