Who We Are
TCV Food Bank is a non-profit organization that provides food assistance and low cost clothing and household items to the residents of Alameda County. We are the largest client-direct food bank in the area. We serve up to 16,000 individuals EVERY MONTH through our marketplace and bag lunch programs. With a staff of 6, a volunteer force of almost 1,900, and a budget that barely breaks $600,000, we are extremely efficient in distributing over 6 million pounds of food annually. We serve all low-income residents of Alameda County. Many of our clients come from migrant families, are under-employed, or are facing unemployment due to disability, a lack of relevant work skills, or other barriers.
We will have the office open on the following days for drop off of food items as listed below –
- Monday, November 16th – 11am to 3pm
- Tuesday, November 17th – 11am to 3pm
- Wednesday, November 18th – 11am to 3pm
- Thursday, November 19th – 11am to 3pm
Please help and support our food drive, and help those families who are in need of food.
We feel this is an important cause for our soccer club to support, where not only are we wanting to make a positive impact in the local community, but to also educate the youth players on the importance of helping those less fortunate and who are in need, and supporting your local community.
We will be starting to collect food donations the first week of November, with dates, time, and location to be confirmed shortly.
Please see the following flyer with the food items that we are requesting for donation.
