SOCIAL ACTION OPPORTUNITIES
The community needs our help more than ever this year.
Donate to the Yom Kippur Virtual Food Bank Drive
The food bank is now serving more than 75,000 people daily, and 1.3 million pounds of food a week to county residents – both numbers more than almost twice more volume than pre-Covid. Two thirds of everyone served are children or seniors.
This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for our Alameda community. Calls to the food bank’s referral line have doubled since pre-Covid, and one third of all callers have never asked for assistance of any kind before.
The food bank is in desperate need of money to help those who are food-insecure and hungry. If you are able, please think of what it costs to feed your family for a week, and please give generously to help those in need ACCFB Virtual Food Drive.
Every year, we have been so proud of our Temple’s support for the Food Bank. It is a wonderful community event to see the bags of food being loaded into the big trucks each Yom Kippur, or the overflowing barrels in the Temple. While we will miss those visuals, we as a community must continue to support this crucial service. We need to help. Please make a donation by October 3, 2021.
