Childrens Emergency Food Bank
The Children's Emergency Food Bank is a local non-profit organization serving Danville, Dublin, Pleasanton and San Ramon. The Food Bank provides food for families in emergency situations, rather than ongoing support. As we have no paid staff and our food storage area is donated, the only overhead we have is for our groceries, answering service maintenance and telephone.
The Food Bank is an all-volunteer organization that operates on JKPC property. Our objective is to furnish canned and packaged food plus certificates from local markets to obtain fresh foods. We try to give each family, based on their need and family size, enough food for a week. Vouchers are available twice yearly for fresh food. We also have a Christmas giveaway which includes turkeys and hams donated by Raleys.
Appointments are made with volunteers, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., who then meet with the recipients at the Food Storage Building located between the back playground and the church parking lot. If there is a real emergency over the weekend, every effort is made to help. To make an appointment, please call the Food Bank answering service at (925) 828-5363.
