Nourish Our Neighbors
It takes a community to feed a community.
We launched the Nourish Our Neighbors program in response to the food access crisis brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. With support from hundreds of donors, dozens of volunteers and highly committed community partners we are working to ensure that local food insecure families and other vulnerable individuals can access wholesome, prepared meals at a time when nutritious food is critical to maintain good health.
MAKING FREE MEALS AVAILABLE FOR OUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED
Donations made to this program provide wholesome, prepared meals made by our member companies, incorporating locally-sourced ingredients when possible. Every meal reaches a grateful neighbor in the East Bay!
Your support sustains this program – THANK YOU!
MEALS DISTRIBUTED SINCE MARCH 2020
Provides vital, supplemental nutrition to vulnerable populations.
Enables continuity for Hope & Main members that would have otherwise been displaced by Covid-19 crisis event and dining restrictions, creating jobs and stabilizing employment in small businesses.
Supports local farms, fisheries and purveyors through procurement of ingredients and packaging for meals.
MEAL PICKUPS, WHEN AND WHERE
PLEASE NOTE: As of Wednesday, October 14, 2020 all free meal distribution is temporarily suspended as we seek additional funding . We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Please contact Caitlin Mandel with any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org
