An alarming 1 in 8 people within Contra Costa and Solano counties turn to the Food Bank for emergency and supplemental food. The Food Bank has developed programs that address the size of this need as well as nutritional needs of the people they serve.
The Food Bank ensures safe food is available to the hungry in our community. They achieved a food safety certification and superior rating from the American Institute of Baking, International (AIB).
They rely on more than 1,000 volunteers a month, over 70 staff members, a large fleet of trucks and two facilities totaling 70,000 square feet to procure and distribute food and grocery items.
For every dollar donated to our organization, they can provide enough food for two meals to people in need.
