Berkeley Food Pantry, project of The Berkeley Friends Church
Berkeley Food Pantry brings good, nutritious groceries into Berkeley and Albany homes experiencing crisis, serving an average of 821 households (2037 people) each month. Funding will support a delivery and incentive pilot incorporating reusable delivery bags in their Pantry at Your Door program, which delivers food to at-risk populations such as elderly, disabled or low-income families with children. Replacing disposable bags will will reduce cost and waste, while making safe food handling easier. Incentives will be built into the pilot to ensure the bags get returned for future food distribution.
