Berkeley Food Network is a unique food distribution organization using community-centric, innovative, and collaborative approaches to address hunger and nutrition insecurity in Northern Alameda County.
We forge relationships with regional businesses and producers to source high quality, nutritious, and ethically produced foods. The food is then sorted and prepared at our West Berkeley warehouse and distributed at no cost to our neighbors through our direct service programs and to local organizations that are deeply engaged with communities in need.
