Thank you for participating in our 2016 Holiday Food and Fund Drive! Alameda County Community Food Bank serves 1 in 5 people in our community. Your support makes a significant difference during this vital time.

To start your traditional collection barrel drive, simply fill out the information below. We’ll do the rest!

To ensure the most efficient use of our resources during highest-demand season we kindly request you commit to collecting at least 150 pounds of food (approx. 8-12 full grocery bags) for each barrel requested. Each full barrel provides up to 160 meals!

If you are uncertain that you’ll fill your barrel(s), please consider collecting food in your own receptacles and scheduling a time below for the Food Bank to pick-up your collection. Thank you.

Step 4: Start your Food Drive
There are two options for getting empty food-collection barrels to your site. Whichever method you choose to receive your barrels, at the end of your drive we will pick up your full barrels within a five-day window from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

  • 1. Grab and Go will call sites: Start your food drive today by picking up empty food barrels from one of our seven Will-Call locations shown in the drop-down menu below. This option saves our drivers precious time and the cost of fuel this busy holiday season.  If you select Grab and Go will-call sites you must still complete and submit this registration. Your "“Grab and Go will-call sites"” confirmation is not complete until your click “Submit” at the end of the form.
