ACCFB needs $5,000 to purchase grocery bags for our Emergency Food Bag project. We have quickly ramped up production of Emergency Food Bags that contain shelf-stable items such as pasta and sauce, canned proteins such as peanut butter and tuna, whole grains, canned fruits and vegetables, and assorted food drive items. These bags enable us to quickly distribute a high level of nutrition in ways that allow for social distancing. We are currently producing 2,000 to 3,000 Emergency Food Bags daily.

We are working closely with school districts across the county to provide Emergency Food Bags and fresh produce at school meal distribution sites. We are now distributing 5,100 Emergency Food Bags weekly to seven school districts (Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Castro Valley, Oakland, Pleasanton, and San Lorenzo). Emergency Food Bags are also being distributed at non-school sites.

We have an unwavering belief that food is a basic human right.
