Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have provided over 6.5 million meals and 10 million pounds of groceries to Oakland families, and others in need. We have also delivered 13-pound boxes of fresh produce to 4,000 families over eight weeks this summer throughout Oakland public schools and parks & recreation youth campsites. Over 1,000 individuals and organizations contributed to this effort, made possible through our partnerships with Oakland Unified School District and local non-profits.
WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN
World Central Kitchen is a global non-profit founded by celebrity Chef José Andrés to provide meals to communities during disasters. We're working alongside World Central Kitchen in Oakland to engage 20-25 local restaurants in the preparation and distribution of up to 5,000 meals each day to Oakland's most vulnerable residents, including low-income children and families, the homeless, immigrants, youth in the foster system, the elderly, and health care and other essential workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.
ALAMEDA COUNTY COMMUNITY FOOD BANK
Food banks around the country are a critical lifeline for communities during the pandemic. In Oakland and throughout Alameda County, we're committed to providing funding and logistical support to the Alameda County Community Food Bank for the delivery of 250,000 meals every week to kids and families throughout this crisis.
OAKLAND UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
OUSD will ensure that students who depend on school for their daily meals continue to receive them during school closures. To date, OUSD has delivered over 500,000 student meals, and in partnership with Eat. Learn. Play. and the Alameda County Community Food Bank, an additional 25,000 bags of groceries to their families. The Foundation continues to convene public and private partnerships to support OUSD in delivering three daily meals and grocery bags to students and families in Oakland.
