Mission

To help establish a foundation of good health from which all Berkeley residents can pursue opportunity, the Berkeley Food Network aims to provide an innovative, community-centered network of food sourcing and distribution to alleviate the problems of hunger and poor nutrition in Berkeley.

Vision

We envision a Berkeley that preserves and fosters its vibrancy and diversity; a city that demonstrates its values through how it treats its most vulnerable, including ensuring that all of its residents are free from hunger and have access to affordable high-quality, healthy food.

Primary Roles

The Berkeley Food Network has four primary roles:

  • To be a leader for collaboration among member agencies
  • To coordinate network-wide food provision services, including a food hub and a mobile pantry
  • To promote awareness about local food insecurity and pursue advocacy
  • To conduct research about food insecurity in Berkeley and best practices in food insecurity work, and disseminate findings to the network
