We’re grateful for the outpouring of support we’ve received to help our crisis response.

Creative ways our partners are supporting our emergency response

Alameda County

For the past seven years, more than a dozen Alameda County departments have participated in the Stone Soup Food Drive and Design competition. This year, a record 20 departments participated – collecting more than nine tons of food and raising more than $23,000. Over the years, the County’s support has provided thousands of meals. We’re so grateful for their continued partnership.

East Bay Community Energy

At the start of our emergency response, East Bay Community Energy (EBCE), committed $35,000 our Food Bank. EBCE then turned to its customers and business partners to join their fundraising effort. After just two weeks, the amount of contributions more than doubled. Their generosity inspired Wilson Sonsini to start a Virtual Food Drive with a goal of raising an additional $4,000.

Alta Bates Summit Medical Center

When COVID-19 hit, ER workers at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center received an outpouring of support from the community. They were so grateful and wanted to give back, so they organized a Virtual Food Drive to benefit ACCFB.

Oakland Panthers

The Oakland Panthers generously started a Virtual Food Drive to support our emergency response efforts. With a goal of $10,000, they’re asking for fans to donate. On July 1, four fans who donated will be randomly picked to win an awesome package of Panthers tickets and gear.

Metallica

Metallica designated May as a “Month of Giving” through their foundation, All Within My Hands. Throughout May, they encouraged donations, donated proceeds from some merchandise, and hosted Metallica Mondays. Read more about their effort.
