Founded in 1985, the Food Bank's primary purpose is to collect and distribute nutritious food to Alameda County's low income residents. The Food Bank accomplishes this through its network of 300 hunger relief agencies which includes food pantries, soup kitchens, residential and day programs, shelters, and USDA distribution sites. In the 2010-11 Fiscal Year, the Alameda County Community Food Bank distributed over 20 million pounds of food to provide food assistance to 49,000 people in need each week.
