Stone Soup Competition 2019 Mar 1, 2019

One of the County's Vision 2026 Goals is to eliminate poverty and hunger. We enthusiastically support the Alameda County Community Food Bank. The Food Bank currently provides services to 1 in 5 Alameda County residents. For every $1 donated via the Virtual Food Drive, the Food Bank is able to distribute $7 worth of food to families in need.

The county-wide tradition involves a friendly sculptural competition to encourage giving. This year's DA entry (pictured below) depicts an apple and textbooks, highlighting the office's dedication to students, families, and schools to ensure that every child "attends school today and achieves tomorrow".
