Organization: Alameda County Community Food Bank

The Alameda County Community Food Bank has been in business since 1985 ... with a vision toward a day when we can go out of business. As Alameda County's central clearinghouse for donated food, the Food Bank distributed 18.9 million pounds of food in the 2009-10 fiscal year – including 8.9 million pounds of farm-fresh produce. Since moving into our permanent facility by the Oakland Airport in 2005 and leading the national food bank movement for a ban on the distribution of carbonated beverages, the Food Bank has ramped up distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables by 745% Through a network of 275 strategically placed member agencies – food pantries, soup kitchens, child-care centers, senior centers, after-school programs and other community-based organizations – the Food Bank distributes enough food for 300,000 meals weekly. In addition to food distribution, the food bank educates the community about the causes of hunger and poverty, advocates for policies that would improve the lives of low-income people and operates an emergency food referral hotline at 1-800-870-3663 (FOOD) for Alameda County. Our systematic approach to alleviating hunger includes: * One of California’s busiest – and most efficient – emergency food helplines * A multilingual food stamp outreach program which serves as the blueprint for programs across the nation * Dynamic hunger and nutrition education programs * An innovative advocacy program that promotes policies to benefit low-income residents A nonprofit organization, the Alameda County Community Food Bank affiliations include Feeding America (formerly named America’s Second Harvest), California Association of Food Banks and the California Hunger Action Coalition.
