such as cereal, oatmeal, eggs, chicken, or tofu.
Food is distributed from a number of different sources such as the USDA, Alameda County, the city of Oakland, the Alameda County Community Food Bank, and donations from local businesses. Due to the variety of sources we cannot guarantee specific items, however we try to provide healthy choices.
