“We hear the statistics, and we are aware of the studies that show the levels of poverty, insecurity, and despair our communities suffer daily. These numbers only tell part of the story and merely inform our work. I head up the Food Bank’s Client Services Team, which runs the community helpline and the CalFresh outreach program.

The real stories happen when we listen; when we keep our feet on the ground and give our undivided attention to the caller asking for food and resources. We learn the most when we acknowledge the challenges but also recognize the hero in every community member.

I think of the 55-year-old mother of three who called recently. She works full-time but is only paid enough to cover her rent. She relies on our services to put food on the table, as well as public benefits to pay other bills. However, when she works overtime to make a little extra, she is penalized and left without public benefits. In her words, 'Every Christmas is a horrible Christmas.' Her story and challenges are not measured in numbers. She is not a case study. She is our neighbor, working around the clock to support her family, and like so many others, she needs our support.” –Arlan Murillo, Director of Client Services

⏰ Our special matching opportunity ends TONIGHT. Will you make a gift to the Food Bank to feed our fellow community members? Donate now to and DOUBLE your impact at https://bit.ly/3TTrXML.

"At the heart of our mission to eradicate hunger is a commitment to serve the immediate needs of our neighbors and address the root causes of food insecurity to end hunger for good. That’s where the Food Bank’s advocacy program comes in. Your support fuels our grassroots efforts to push elected leaders to pass laws that will prevent people from going hungry in the first place.

In the coming weeks, our dedicated team – including staff, grassroots volunteers, and community members – will travel to Sacramento to meet with your state legislators. Our goal is to ensure that elected leaders hear the voices of community members affected by food insecurity when they are crafting policies. This year we’re also building a leadership academy empowering food bank clients to become anti-hunger leaders and advocate for their own needs.

These efforts, which are as critical to our mission as the food on our warehouse shelves, are part of what you support when you give. If uncertainty about the future has you feeling uneasy, consider the transformative impact of donating to support our advocacy work." –Ezer Pamintuan, Senior Policy Advocate

⏰ For the next 2 days, Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry's Eat Learn Play Foundation will be matching all donations up to $250,000. Just be sure to donate before midnight, December 31st! 📅 Donate at https://bit.ly/3TTrXML.

"Our mission extends beyond merely alleviating hunger: It is to eradicate it altogether. Advocacy is central to our identity, ensuring that we address the underlying issues that perpetuate food insecurity. Your gift is an investment in community empowerment and the means by which we advocate for change."

⚠️ CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS ⚠️ Start 2024 with a volunteer shift (or 2!)

Volunteers are bagging and boxing half a million pounds of food a month this holiday season. But please don’t leave us come January! There’s still plenty to do in the new year. We especially need help next week:
Wed, Jan 3
Thurs, Jan 4
Fri, Jan 5

➡️ Sign up at https://www.accfb.org/get-involved/volunteer-calendar/. Please help spread the word! Invite your friends, groups of co-workers, and family for a warehouse shift. We’re also looking for volunteers to load vehicles at our community market.

“I am the director of programs here at ACCFB – and I have experienced firsthand the challenges of food insecurity within my own family. My journey from receiving WIC benefits and food stamps to working at the Food Bank makes ending hunger both a professional and personal mission.

Our programs team works tirelessly to distribute food to our 400-partner network. We are always improving our model to increase accessibility. We can provide food, but if someone doesn’t have a stove to cook it on, we must adapt. Whether it’s a farmers’ market-style pantry where clients choose their own food; soup kitchens; or free food boxes, we do what is necessary to feed our community. Our impact is immense, with nearly 60 million pounds of food served to our neighbors this year.” –Keyona Lazenby, Director of Programs

🤝 Together, we are creating a hunger-free Alameda County. But we're heading into 2024 with a lot of work still ahead of us. Will you step up once again before Dec. 31? ⏰ Donate by Dec. 31 at https://bit.ly/3TTrXML and your gift will be MATCHED by Stephen and Ayesha Curry's Eat Learn Play Foundation!

🧡 Your generous contribution, whether it's $5 or thousands of dollars, is going toward a cause that allows Alameda County neighbors not only to eat, but thrive, as hunger affects every part of one’s well-being. Thank you for being a partner in the solution by supporting the Food Bank.

“As ACCFB’s director of procurement, it’s my job to source food at the best price and get it to our warehouse so that we can provide it to the community.

You’d be surprised — my role is a little bit like a stockbroker on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange. Eggs are one of our most high-demand products, but they're also really expensive. Just this morning, I was negotiating with three different vendors and managed to save 35 cents a dozen! 🥚 🥚 🥚 That might not sound like a lot but it's part of what makes my job so exciting and meaningful.

In procurement, you have to work in the moment. If you miss it, you could miss that dime — and those dimes add up to losing thousands of dollars, meaning thousands of pounds of undistributed food.

I’m always looking for a deal, and here’s a big one: Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry's Eat Learn Play Foundation will be matching all donations before midnight, December 31st, up to $250,000. Together with your support and their match, you’d help me and my team purchase the equivalent of **one million meals**” –Joclynn Alioto, Director of Procurement & Supply Chain

We’re so lucky to partner with Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry's Eat Learn Play Foundation year-round in uprooting hunger across Alameda County and beyond. They’ve stepped up again by generously matching all donations up to $250,000 through Dec. 31.
