Find a Food Drive

You can find the Food Bank’s food collection barrels across Alameda County year-round. If you’d like to donate a bag or small box of nonperishable food, you can always do so at these locations. We encourage you to call ahead to confirm current hours of operation.

If you have more than one bag/box of food, please bring it to the Food Bank. We are open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please click here for information about bulk food producer, food broker, manufacturer, retailer, grocer, and grower donations.
