Help Fight Hunger with Alameda Food Bank’s 30/30 Spring Challenge
The Alameda Food Bank’s 30/30 Spring Challenge is in full swing, and the event provides the perfect opportunity to do so. Its goal is to raise $30,000 and collect 30,000 pounds of food by the end of June.
Modern Mouse is an Alameda Food Bank drop-off center, so swing on by the shop during store hours to unload those cans in the back of your cupboards! As of mid-May, donors have contributed 11,362 pounds of food. Together with your help, we can help them reach their goals!
More about the Alameda Food Bank
The Alameda Food Bank provides hunger relief to one out of every fourteen Alameda residents, many of whom must subsist on an average income of $800 a month. The service the Alameda Food Bank provides is critical to its clients and our community, and your support is critical to them.
For a donation of about five dollars—less than the cost of a little piece of cheese—a client can visit the food bank up to six times a month and take home nearly half of their groceries. Through their programs, clients have access to fresh fruit and vegetables, day-old bread, frozen meat, canned goods, staples like rice and cereal, and even cheese.
