Since 1985, the Alameda County Community Food Bank has helped people in need. As Alameda County’s central clearinghouse for donated food, the Food Bank distributed ten million pounds of food during fiscal year 2002-2003. In turn, the Food Bank’s network of 300 community based organizations provided food assistance to 120,000 individuals each month, including adults, children, the elderly, people with disabilities, abuse survivors, people living with AIDS, and the homeless. In addition to food distribution, the Food Bank educates the community about the causes of hunger and poverty, advocates for policies that would improve the lives of low-income people and operates an emergency food referral hotline.
