Food is a basic human right.

Get involved as an advocate.

We believe every child, adult and senior should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and live vibrant, productive lives. Our community, and our economy, must be inclusive of all.

Centered on these beliefs, our team works year-round with every level of government to end poverty and inequity. Whether we’re giving testimony at state budget hearings or hosting educational events to inspire action, we rely on a powerful group of community advocates and volunteers to amplify all of our voices.

The movement is stronger with you in it. Join us.

The 2021 Policy Agenda, our boldest and most far-reaching yet, focuses on democratization, equity, and the redistributing of power and resources.

Our work is rooted in the soil. People depend on food banks, and food banks depend on farmers and farmworkers. It is our responsibility to invest in this relationship with an equity lens. ACCFB is projected to spend $21 million in procurement in FY21. Our food purchasing budget presents an opportunity to operationalize equity by allocating dollars to Black and Brown farmers.

This video features Will Scott Jr, owner of Scott Family Farms and founder of the African American Farmers of California in Fresno, CA. We hope you will contact us at advocate@accfb.org to partner or share thoughts on how we can promote equity in our procurement practices.
