Our matching donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has been deeply moved by stories of seniors facing food insecurity within our community. Thatโ€™s why this giving season, they are matching all donations up to $20k to double the impact.

โ€œbeing able to offer a well-balanced meal is extremely important for their health and mental well-being." - Anonymous donor

As an immigrant themself, they can relate to how challenging it can be to build a life in a new environment. That knowledge motivates them to give back to programs like โ€œMeal of Loveโ€ that address urgent community needs.

Help us raise $20k before 2024. To donate, visit ๐Ÿ”— givebutter.com/giveamealoflove

To everyone who has already made a gift to end senior hunger, we thank you. Every gift matters! ๐Ÿซถ

Support from the community is vital to the work we do- like this hand-written note and cash donation from a senior, who receives hot meals through our โ€œMeal of Loveโ€ program.

โ€œIt makes me very happy to see that there are organizations like KCCEB who care for the elderly in the community, who are facing many challenges. It makes me so proud to see KCCEB staff serving the community with a smile on their faces. Because of you, I have been able to find hope and solace. I wish you nothing but the best in the new year!โ€

Feedback like this from community members we serve inspires us, as we look ahead to another impactful year of empowering immigrant and refugee communities. You can make an impact today by donating or sharing our year-end campaign so we can deliver hot meals to even more seniors in 2024!

Yesterday, we mobilized over 100 community members and 13 partner organizations representing 12 languages to pack the court and advocate for mental health access. Mrs. Yon Suk Chin, KCCEBโ€™s Jikimee Senior Leadership Group member, took the stand to speak on the importance of extending Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) program funding that makes programs like the Jikimee program possible.โ 
โ 
โ€œThe mere thought of losing this vital support network is not only distressing but also unthinkable. It's a harsh blow, particularly now when we are looking at ways to expand our reach and deepen our impact within the community. For someone like me, who has consistently faced language barriers, Jikimee has been more than just a group; it's a platform where I can contribute meaningfully to our community.โ€ Excerpt from Mrs. Chinโ€™s speech, translated by KCCEBโ€™s MSW intern, Alina Kimโ

A manuscript KCCEB has been working on with our partners is accepted for publication in Frontiers in Public Healthโ€”the most cited journal in its field!

This community case study was conducted in collaboration with Refugee Immigrant Collaborative for Empowerment (RICE) from September 2021 to October 2022. It describes a three-part advocacy-focused intervention that RICE undertook, which included:
๐Ÿ‘‰๏ธ a community needs survey
๐Ÿ‘‰๏ธ a landscape assessment of the Alameda County Health Department's communication materials and online platforms
๐Ÿ‘‰๏ธ relationship building with the ACPHD

Data disaggregation, language equity-based advocacy, and cross-sector collaboration were critical ingredients in RICE's intervention. We thank our RICE partners and ACPHD for working together on this community case study!

We are on TV! Yeri Shon, Associate Director of Korean Community Center of the East Bay (KCCEB) dives deep into the history of discrimination faced by Asian Americans and shares some of KCCEBโ€™s community-driven solutions to the evolving needs of our community, including data driven advocacy to ignite policy change, community safety surveys and self-defense classes, and mental health support for survivors of violence.

Watch the full video on MBC America's Youtube channel to learn about what we can do as community to .

โ€œWhen we start breaking silence and share [our] stories, we realize that many others have similar lived experiences, and that could become a foundation to bringing our communities together.โ€

Today is Chuseok (์ถ”์„), also known as Hangawi (ํ•œ๊ฐ€์œ„). It is a major holiday celebrated in Korea and by the Korean diaspora worldwide. With its roots in agricultural customs, families gather during the Chuseok holiday to honor ancestors, celebrate abundant harvest and togetherness under the full harvest moon. KCCEBโ€™s Program Coordinator Jorim Rhee said it best during our Story Sharing event at Lincoln Summer Nights:

โ€œDuring the Chuseok and Mid-Autumn season, we need to come together as a community and celebrate the fact that there is hope and joy in our togetherness. Thatโ€™s the essence of what Chuseok means to us.โ€

You can catch KCCEB staff at the Festival this year. How will you be celebrating? Tell us in the comments below! ๐Ÿ‘‡๏ธ

We were thrilled to gather once again for the second session of Crop Circles at Joodooboo! Cross-cultural connections through food and storytelling were made, filling our hearts and bellies.
The meaningful connections made are best expressed in the words of our senior:

"I am so touched by today's event. Hearing Nadiaโ€™s stories about her family and her farm (Thurayya Seeds) is such an honor. I think it is amazing that she is doing this important work to preserve Palestinian crops, in the midst of all the heartache, and with a smile on her face.โ€ - Jikimee senior

The rare and nostalgia inducing gaeguri chamoe (๊ฐœ๊ตฌ๋ฆฌ ์ฐธ์™ธ) made an appearance as a sweet ending to the beautiful meal. With it, the seniors were transported to a time they ate them lastโ€” in some cases, it was shortly after Koreaโ€™s liberation from colonial occupation in the late 1940โ€™sโ€” as young children.

Thank you Kristyn Leach of Namu Farm, Second Generation Seeds, Thurayya Seeds, and Joodooboo for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this project and fostering meaningful connections.

Did you know that for every $100 awarded by US foundations, only 20 cents is dedicated to Asian American and Pacific Islander communities? While Asian Americans are the fastest-growing racial or ethnic group in the US, the reality of funding opportunities for AAPI-serving nonprofits continue to be incongruous to the needs of our community.

You can help bridge this gap by joining Club 5, a community of monthly donors who KCCEB's nimble team the stability to continue addressing the most urgent needs of the Bay Area's immigrant and refugee populations.
