About ACCFB (boilerplate*)

Alameda County Community Food Bank — Feeding America’s 2016-2017 Food Bank of the Year – has been at the forefront of hunger relief efforts in the Bay Area since 1985. The Food Bank serves 1 in 4 Alameda County residents by distributing food through a network of 420+ food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community organizations, as well as direct-distribution programs including Children’s Backpack and Mobile Pantry. More than half of the food distributed is farm-fresh produce. For 14 consecutive years, Alameda County Community Food Bank has received Charity Navigator’s top rating — Four Stars — ranking the organization among the top 1 percent of charities nationwide.

Our Numbers

  • Food Insecurity has increased 50%+ since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We now estimate at least 1 in 4 county residents is experiencing or at-risk of hunger.
  • Our operations have expanded dramatically. Food distribution is up 50-70% with expanded services (e.g., contactless drive-through distributions) in addition to our agency network.
  • We’re distributing more than 1 million pounds of food each week.
  • We’re distributing enough food to serve 70,000+ people a day.
  • 300 of our regular distributions are still operating during this emergency. We’ve also added more than 20 new distributions.
    • We have partnered with 12 school districts across the county to provide emergency food bags and fresh produce.
    • We’ve added three pop-up drive-through distributions. Combined, the distributions are serving 20,000+ people each week.
  • When this crisis began our Emergency Food Helpline experienced a 1,000% increase in calls. Months in, the volume remains 2-3 times what it was before the crisis.  Between one-third and half of the volume comes from first time callers and/or calls from households with seniors.
