Partnership Opportunities

Did you know that in May 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis, 9.2 million Californians (23% of California’s population) were food insecure, not knowing where their next meal would come from?

At the San Leandro Family Help Center, we partner with local food distributors, grocery stores and the Alameda County Community Food Bank on the mission to feed hungry families and reduce food waste.
