Thank you! We made the match for the Morning Snack Program!
Thanks to hundreds of supporters like you, we raised enough to meet the $30,000 FedEx matching gift and then some! These funds help us continue to serve more than 10,000 school children each year. On behalf of the schools, volunteers, teachers, and the entire Morning Snack Program team at the Food Bank, thanks to all our friends and supporters who contributed! And special thanks to FedEx!

Food from the Bar
Food from the Bar, the legal community’s annual competitive food and fund raising drive sponsored by the Bar Association of San Francisco, kicks off on April 30. Last year’s campaign was a record-breaking success and inspired this year’s lofty goals: raise $520,000, collect 14,000 pounds of food, and host 700 volunteer hours. To register your firm or find out more, please visit foodfromthebar.org.
KIND has chosen the Food Banks as the beneficiary of their “mission of kindness” in May. Take the pledge between April 24th and May 1st and KIND will partner with the Food Bank to provide enough food for thousands of much-needed family meals. KIND team members will even volunteer at the Food Bank to help us provide food to our community!
Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West
KALW Presents — Tavis Smiley & Dr. Cornel West at Oakland’s Paramount Theatre

In their new book, The Rich and the Rest of Us: A Poverty Manifesto, award-winning broadcaster Tavis Smiley and leading progressive scholar Dr. Cornel West take on the “p” word — poverty. They challenge all Americans to re-examine their assumptions about poverty in America — what it really is and how to eradicate it. The event will be free and open to the public.
