About the Berkeley Food Network

The Berkeley Food Network (BFN) is comprised of Berkeley agencies and individuals that provide services to neighbors in our community who are struggling with food insecurity. BFN’s primary objectives are to:

Coordinate network-level services to fill gaps in access to food in Berkeley
Conduct research to better understand our community’s needs; and
Promote awareness about food insecurity and pursue advocacy in Berkeley.


Trainings, research, advocacy.
