Imagine the impact on a family already facing a choice between rent and food. We saw a 10% increase in Emergency Food Helpline calls in 2010. This is just one factor.

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. We are the hub of a vast collection and distribution network that provides food for 275 nonprofit agencies in Alameda County. In 2010, the Food Bank distributed 20.1 million pounds of food – 52% of it fresh fruits and vegetables.
Since moving into our permanent facility near 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 845%.
