Last year, we rescued 27 million pounds of produce that would have otherwise gone to waste. Read about a national campaign that urges companies, schools, and government agencies to keep more food out of landfills.

Fascinating photography project that shows what ends up in the trash for a handful of households. A lot of it is food. Have you thought about what you throw away in a single week? #foodwaste

Hunger isn't fun, but the folks who put out the film, A Place At The Table, created an arcade-style video game for people to learn about hunger and how it affects the 47 million Americans who rely on federal nutrition assistance.
Educate yourself about America's hunger crisis by playing this arcade-style game.

What's in the Warehouse this Wednesday? We've got 180 cases (4,140 pounds) of fresh eggs, donated by Olivera Egg Ranch in San Jose - that’s 32,400 eggs arriving just in time for Easter! Thanks so much, Olivera Egg Ranch, for your very timely donation ~

This word cloud, courtesy of Feeding America, was created from search words used through the Google SNAP Online Referral Project (aka G-SNAP). We're one of 20 food banks across the country chosen to participate in G-SNAP. People using Google to search the internet for CalFresh or related keywords are directed to a referral page at Feeding America to get connected to us. It's a great way for us to reach the newly unemployed and those in need who may not know where to go for resources. Pretty cool, right?

Love this blog post from Cleverly Simple about budget meal planning. It even includes free printables to help get you organized. Are you a meal planner?
