About the Organization:
Alameda County Community Food Bank is a well-established and multi-faceted organization, which has been at the forefront of food justice efforts for 35 years. As one of the most efficient direct-impact organizations in the country, few nonprofits are as well-respected — or have a bigger impact on the community — as us. We are a dedicated group of mission-driven people who will provide enough food for 30 million meals this year for 1 in 4 county residents facing food insecurity. But that barely scratches the surface of all our work. We’re changing lives … we’re forward thinkers who encourage innovation … we’re proud of our work … and we’re having fun doing it!

Our strategic plan sets a bold trajectory for the long-term work required to dismantle the systems that perpetuate hunger and poverty, including racism. Our staff regularly engage in conversations about race, class, power, and privilege as part of our organizational commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging.
