Join us in ensuring good food goes to good use.
Food Industry Donations
The Food Bank welcomes donations from across the food industry – from large manufacturers and retail distributors to small, locally-owned businesses and grocers. Local food industry donations account for over 25 percent of the food we distribute. Recovering surplus food continues to gain national attention as an easy way to give back, and these donations greatly help us serve the 1 in 5 Alameda County residents who rely on the Food Bank.
