With the help of our individual donors, corporate partners, funders, staff and volunteers, the Food Bank is responding to a dramatic increase in need. More individuals and families are struggling to meet basic needs – including putting food on their tables. The faces that I see and the stories I hear each day deepens my commitment to provide nourishment and hope to deserving children, adults and seniors in our community. I hope you’ll join me: donate, volunteer, advocate – make us stronger.

Program Description:

The Food Bank's toll-free helpline (1-800-870-3663) is among the busiest - and most efficient - in California, connecting callers to emergency food providers in their neighborhoods for same-day bags of food.   The Community Outreach program provides information about the Food Stamp Program and offers application assistance.

Program Long-Term Success:

Since 2007, the Food Bank's Emergency Food Helpline has responded to a 95% increase in need in the community. Our 2 Helpline staff and 30 volunteers are now making over 3,000 referrals every month.

Connecting people to a hot meal or a bag of groceries in their neighborhood, the same day they call for assistance.

Program Success Monitored by:

Number of people referred to one of our member agencies.

Program Success Examples:

Maria, single mother of two, calling for a bag of groceries to help get her family through the week. An Emergency Helpline volunteer set her up to pick up a bag of groceries from a neighborhood member agency and also referred Maria to our Food Stamp outreach team. The Food Stamp outreach coordinator Maria worked with found out that Maria qualified for $250/month for her family of three. With this help, Maria was able to feed her family while she continued to look for another job.

Program: Food Stamp Outreach (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
April 2013)

Budget:
--
Category:
Food, Agriculture & Nutrition
Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

The Food Stamp program of the US Dept of Agriculture is grossly underutilized. The program brings valuable federal dollars into the community and helps low-income families get back on their feet. The average family receives food stamps for 6 months. The Food Bank focuses on outreach to spread awareness and screen potential candidates for the Food Stamp program.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Food Stamp outreach program is now doing outreach in low-income white, African-American, Latino, Chinese and Vietnamese communities. They have increased their outreach work to hundreds of community and school presentations and fairs throughout the county.

Program Short-Term Success:

The Food Bank outreach team is the most agressive in the state, increasing sign-ups by 25% last year and helping deserving families put food on the table.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Food Bank measures the success of the Food Stamp outreach program through different measurements: - the number of presentations done and tabling events attended in Alameda County - the number of people who call seeking more information about the Food Stamp program - the number of people who are screened for Food Stamps and - the number of people who qualify for and receive Food Stamps

Program Success Examples:

An example of the success of Food Stamp outreach is Alicia and her boys. Alicia was laid off in 2008 and was having difficulties finding another job. When unemployment ran out, she started picking up groceries from a local food pantry a couple of times a month. The Food Bank did a Food Stamp presentation at that agency and Alicia approached the staff about her eligibility. After screening by the Food Bank staff, Alicia's application was submitted and she received $215/month to help with her grocery bills. She was thrilled. Between the groceries from the pantry and the Food Stamps, Alicia was able to get through the month. A few months afterward Alicia found a job and was able to stop receiving food stamps. When she last spoke to Food Bank staff, she said, "Thanks so much for your help with the food stamp program - me and my boys could not have made it through the last year without you!"
