City of Alameda launches Feed Alameda campaign to feed our most vulnerable residents & support struggling local restaurants
As of January 11, 2021, the City of Alameda is launching Feed Alameda, a new campaign that expands on the faith-based Dine and Connect Program by feeding the most vulnerable members of our community while supporting local restaurants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
City funding will underwrite the first ten weeks of meals and a GoFundMe campaign will allow the community to extend this program through the difficult months ahead. Sponsors to date include the Alameda Rotary, Alameda Police Officers Association, Alameda Chamber of Commerce, and Alameda Firefighter’s Local 689. Many thanks to the Alameda Point Collaborative for being the fiscal sponsor of Feed Alameda. All donations are tax deductible.
