Volunteers are a vital part of our efforts to help 1 in 5 Alameda County residents including children, seniors, and entire families. Our warehouse and office are abuzz with hunger relief activity; and your help is needed more than ever.

Alameda County Community Food Bank thrives on the support of employees from over 350 companies.
We especially need helping hands from now through September to sort and package the thousands of pounds of produce that we distribute in our community each week.
