There is a hunger problem in Berkeley and Albany. Pre-pandemic, it was estimated that 24,000 individuals were food insecure. We believe the best way to relieve hunger is to design services around the community member experience — enhancing convenient, non-stigmatizing access to healthy, high-quality food at no cost to the recipients. Through our combination of sourcing, preparation, and distribution, our programs serve over 6,000 people weekly through our on-site pantry and distributions in neighboring communities across northern Alameda County.
