About Us

Did you know that 1 in 5 Berkeley residents are not able to put enough food on their tables to live healthy, hunger-free lives?

The Berkeley Food Network was founded in December 2016 with the straightforward goal of ending hunger in Berkeley. And while our goal may be straightforward, the path to reaching it is not. We have created an innovative mix of community-centered and collaborative programs to get food to the people in Berkeley who need it.
