Demand for Donated Food Surges

Not only has a "sputtering economy" ratcheted up requests for help in putting food on the table, says Program Coordinator Samantha Kahn, it also sets the pace for the Alameda Food Bank's spring fundraiser. As of mid-May 2011, the agency collected $7,000 of its $30,000 goal, money that partly will buy fresh produce for the hungry. In addition to provisions from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Alameda County Community Food Bank, the local food bank depends on grocery stores, farmers markets, individuals and other donors for food and funds.
