Alameda
County Community Food Bank is a well-established and multi-faceted
organization, which has been at the forefront of hunger relief efforts for 35
years. As one of the most efficient direct-impact organizations in the country,
few nonprofits are as well-respected — or have a bigger impact on the community
— as us. We are a dedicated group of mission-driven people who serve 1 in 5
county residents and will provide enough food for 30 million meals this year.
But that barely scratches the surface of all our work. We’re changing lives …
we’re forward thinkers who encourage innovation … we’re proud of our work … and
we’re having fun doing it! 

 

With
our new strategic plan, we are setting a bold trajectory for the long-term work
required to dismantle the systems that perpetuate poverty, including racism.
Our staff regularly engage in conversations about race, class, power and
privilege as part of our organizational commitment to equity, diversity and
inclusion. Please learn more about our efforts at www.accfb.org.
