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. As Alameda County's central clearinghouse for donated food, the Food Bank will distribute 18.2 million pounds of food in 2009 – including 7.6 million pounds of farm-fresh produce. Since moving into our permanent facility by the Oakland Airport in 2005, the Food Bank has ramped up distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables by a factor of 633%.
Through a network of 275 strategically placed member agencies – food pantries, soup kitchens, child-care centers, senior centers, after-school programs and other community-based organizations – the Food Bank distributes enough food for 300,000 meals weekly.
