Food from the Bar

The legal community is gearing up for the 32nd annual Food From the Bar hunger-fighting competition, and we need your help! To help meet the increased need for food in our community, we are dedicating an entire month, from September 25 to November 5, 2023 to Food From the Bar fundraising.

Friends, the Food Bank is currently serving twice as many people as it did pre-pandemic. More than 465,000 people per month in our community now need help making ends meet.

Please join us in this friendly competition by creating a team (for your firm, company, or organization) and encouraging those around you to donate. All donations made under your team’s name will count toward your team’s goal!

With every $1 raised, the Food Bank can provide TWO healthy meals, so each donation makes a big impact! Food From the Bar has raised enough money to provide more than 2.8 million meals to feed our community! We can’t wait to see how many lives we can impact this year, so create your team today!

With our humble gratitude, thank you for supporting the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.Novem
