People v. Hunger

For 10 years, the Alameda County Office of the District Attorney has partnered with us to fight hunger. They choose a day when the courts are closed to volunteer. We're so grateful for their continued support.

Welcome, Ward!

Ward Kanowsky joins us as our Temporary Volunteer Services Coordinator after having volunteered at ACCFB since 2007. We are excited and fortunate to have Ward onboard. Say hi when you see him in the warehouse.

Good luck, Andrew

Andrew Hayes left the Food Bank in February after nearly four years of service. In that time, he inspired thousands to learn about our mission and join our community of volunteers. We thank him for his service and wish him all the best.
