Our Upcoming Events
Help Fight Hunger
Each year, the City of Oakland provides more than 10,000 emergency brown bags of groceries to low-income Oakland residents and holds two special events: the Annual Thanksgiving Dinner and the Project Homeless Connect outreach fair.
All activities are performed by volunteers from the community and are made possible through generous donations from local businesses, corporations and individuals.
Please join us in the fight against hunger! Your donations are tax deductible.
