Think About the Bay Area Food Banks During the Holidays

While most people in the Bay Area are thinking about eating less after a huge Thanksgiving Dinner and all of the food at Christmas parties throughout the month of December, there are still a lot of folks out there who can’t get enough food to eat. At EH Clean, we believe in sharing the wealth and that no one should ever go hungry during the holidays.

These four non-profit organizations need donated food this year: The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, the Alameda Food Bank, the Napa Food Bank and the Monument Crisis Center.

The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano has been serving the community for nearly 40 years, feeding approximately 188,000 hungry people in need every month directly at community sites and through a network of 180 charitable agencies, and distributed over 20 million pounds last year- that’s enough for more than 16 million meals! The work could not get done without the help of the thousands of volunteers that donate their time to coordinate food drives, sort and pack the food, and help distribute it to their hungry neighbors.

The Napa Food Bank stays true to its mission by providing people in need with one of the basic needs of life– food, along with other programs to support people as they become self-sufficient members of the vibrant community in Napa, CA.

The Monument Crisis Center serves low-income families and individuals in Contra Costa County by providing nutritious food, education, general assistance and referrals. Over the last year, with the help of hundreds of volunteers and donors, the Monument Crisis Center distributed a five- day supply of food to over 96,000 individuals, thereby providing one million meals to those most at risk in Contra Costa County. In addition to food service programs, the Monument Crisis Center advocates for at-risk families and individuals and strives to unite the community in a forward effort to alleviate poverty. In the fiscal year 2014-15, the Monument Crisis Center distributed over 55,000 diapers and 26,800 boxes of food to 96,000 individuals.

The Alameda Food Bank’s mission is to provide nutritious food to the low-income residents of the City of Alameda on a non-discriminating basis. The Alameda Food Bank is a private, non-affiliated, non-profit, tax-exempt agency. The Food Bank is overseen by a board of directors composed of community volunteers. Its day to day operation is run by two paid staff members and over 150 volunteers.
