ONEOne in five Alameda County residents (mostly children and the elderly) are helped by the ACCFB, who feed over 116,000 people every month through a distribution network that provides food for 240 nonprofit agencies in Alameda County, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, child-care centers, senior centers, after-school programs and other community-based organizations. The food bank distributes enough food for 380,000 meals weekly.

Starting this month, AHS began a virtual food drive to make donating as easy as figuring out which Netflix to watch!

For every dollar donated, the ACCFB gets $6.00 of purchasing power. That means if you donate $10, the ACCFB can purchase over $60 worth of fresh foods and vegetables.  (In 2014, more than half the food distributed by the ACCFB was of the fresh fruit and vegetable variety.)ONE (1)

At AHS over 41% of patients report that the number one concern is food insecurity, meaning they lack the proper resources and access to nutritious foods. Now you can help the very people we serve!

But it’s not just AHS patients that are affected (of course) much of our community struggles, every day, with food insecurity. Whether you can give $1.00 or $1,000 dollars:

Every dollar counts.
