Notes:

The Food Bank was founded in 1975 by people who saw the need for
a central clearinghouse for food donations. The Food Bank was
incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Federal
Tax ID# 94-2418054) at that time. Back then, the Food Bank had
two employees, one truck, and a trailer for storing food. The
driver would pick up day old bread from Safeway and return it
to the trailer, where people from area churches would pick it
up and distribute it from their food pantries at church.

We were certified by the America?s Second Harvest Food Bank
Network in 1981. In 1995, the Solano Food Bank merged with the
Contra Costa Food Bank, so we became the Food Bank of Contra
Costa and Solano.

Since then, we have grown as the problem of hunger in our counties
has grown. We presently serve over 82,000 people every month, and
distribute about 8 million pounds a year, enough food for 6.4
million meals! The Food Bank employs 36 staff members in Contra
Costa and Solano counties. But the work could not get done without
the help of the hundreds of volunteers that donate their time to
coordinate food drives, sort and pack the food, and help distribute
it to their hungry neighbors.

To learn more about the Food Bank and the work we do or to find out
how you can help, please explore this website, email
