Staff setting up food barrel at our branchWe’re excited to support Alameda County Community Food Bank’s mission by serving as their annual Food Drive Host.

Throughout the year, we will have food collection barrels in our branches for you to drop off your non-perishable donations (about a barrel full). How’s that for convenience? All food donations will be distributed to Alameda County Food Bank to help our local community.

We hope you’ll join us in giving back by hosting your own food drive.

United we are stronger!
