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 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!

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 this link with your team mates, and have them locate your team name to start donating at any time during the month of May!

“Community means all of us who live, work and play in Alameda County – and too many members of our community don’t know from where their next meal will come. Kids going hungry is especially unacceptable. Gratefully, Alameda County Community Food Bank is open for them.
Please join me in supporting the Food Bank through Food From The Bar – and ensuring every child and family has healthy food each day.”

Nancy O’Malley
Alameda County District Attorney

“The ACBA and Legal Access Alameda are proud to have provided free legal assistance to more than 4000 Alameda County residents last year. But without proper nutrition, legal help can only go so far. Our partnership with Alameda County Food Bank enables us to support our clients in that critical way.”
