Warriors To Host Holiday Food & Fund Drive on December 22 Against Los Angeles Lakers
First 500 Fans to Donate Five or More Non-Perishable Food Items Receive Popcorn Voucher
Fans can drop off their donations in one of the Food Bank’s bright red barrels located at the East, North, Plaza, Valet and F-lot entrances of Oracle Arena. Food Bank volunteers will also be onsite accepting financial donations.
Earlier this year, Warriors players Richard Jefferson and Carl Landry and employees from the Golden State Warriors visited the Alameda County Community Food Bank on Friday, October 12, to assist with the Food Bank’s efforts by helping sort and package non-perishable food and fresh produce destined for non-profit agencies throughout Alameda County.
Since 1985, the Alameda County Community Food Bank has been at the forefront of hunger-relief efforts in the Bay Area. This year the Food Bank will distribute 24 million pounds of food, more than half farm-fresh produce. The Food Bank serves 1 in 6 Alameda County residents – nearly half children – by distributing food through a network of 275 food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community organizations. In total, the Food Bank serves 49,000 people each week – two and a half times the capacity of Oracle Arena during a Warriors home game.
