Alameda County Food Drive

Hello Thunderbirds!

It is time to start our annual food drive to support the Alameda County Food Bank. Every year we see the big collection bins in the lobby filled with food that we distribute to the Alameda County Food Bank to help make a hunger free community.

Here are a few facts about the Alameda County Food Bank:
• It has been in business since 1985 with a mission to have a hunger free community
• It’s an organization that provides food for 240 non profit agencies in Alameda County
• The ACFB distributes enough food for about 380,000 meals weekly

Here are some ideas of what to donate:
• non-perishable items
• canned fruits and vegetables
• bags or boxes of rice
• dried pasta
• boxes of cereal

The food bins will arrive next week and the food drive will continue through the first week of January. So let’s all start donating now!

Yours truly,
Charlotte, 4th grade
