We will be sorting, screening, shelving and/or boxing food in the warehouse. Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty (no sandals or flip-flops allowed).

We encourage participants to bring along some nonperishable food such as canned vegetables, fruits, meats and fish; pasta and tomato sauce; beans, rice, peanut butter, cereal/oatmeal and powdered milk.

Our association is partnering with Alameda County Community Food Bank in conjunction with Amherst Caring Together (ACT), a community service and engagement program for Amherst Associations, to help provide meals to those in need in our community. Please join us as we unite with other national Amherst associations this spring to make an impact in our local communities.

The Food Bank continues to experience a shortage of donated food.  If you cannot attend the service day, please consider participating in their virtual food drive.

For questions or if you'd like to be picked up at the Oakland Coliseum BART station prior to the event, please contact Sudha Lakshmi '96 at or (510) 468-7660 or Ryan Szczepanik '99 at or (404) 862-1917.
