Virtual Food Drive for Alameda County Community Food Bank

Results – November Food Drive
For the Alameda County Community Food Bank

Dear Skyline Church and Preschool,

With an initial goal of $800 surpassed, the goal was expanded to $1500. Our virtual food drive is over, and you’ve donated $1,751 to supply 3,502 meals to Alameda County residents! Well done!

Here’s a thank you from the Alameda County Community Food Bank:

Even though 2020 has been a challenging year, we still found some bright spots: YOU.

Your compassion, support, and dedication to ending hunger in our community is something all of us at ACCFB are grateful for. You’ve donated, volunteered, shared our messages, and so much more. 

You may not always get to see the impact you’ve had – but we want you to know just how important you are to our community. We made this short video to say thank you.

From all of us at Alameda County Community Food Bank, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving.

Gratefully,
The ACCFB Team

Annual Food Drive for Alameda County Community Food Bank

Sunday. November 3 – Sunday, December 2

Join our annual food drive to over-fill a barrel for the Alameda County Community Food Bank!  The preschool participates as well and builds awareness with the children.  The barrel will be in the sanctuary.  Please share your abundance!

Here’s a letter from Allison Pratt, Chief Partnership and Strategy Officer at the ACCFB about food insecurity in the bay area.

This week, hunger in Alameda County made front page news and was the topic of hot discussion on the radio.

One in five county neighbors is experiencing or at risk of hunger. Compared to national and statewide averages, households struggling here are younger, more likely to have children, and make too much to receive government assistance. And, hunger is growing in suburban areas – an increasing effect of the high cost of living on local food insecurity.

These findings come from a groundbreaking new study conducted by the Urban Institute — a social and economic think tank — and was at the heart of features by the SF Chronicle and on KQED’s Forum radio show.
When you have a moment, please read more about this research. This is one of the most in-depth studies ever conducted on hunger at the local level — and is already informing our programming to reach more people.

Thank you for your support and partnership as we pursue a hunger-free Alameda County.
