The people have spoken. The need is great. Join us for another opportunity to Feed the Hood! We are excited to host #FeedTheHood3 at Oakland SOL Middle School in deep East Oakland, where the middle school students are eager to participate.
With the community’s amazing contributions and 250 volunteers on September 17, we were able to prepare and distribute 1,600 bagged lunches and 1,600 hygiene kits to homeless, vulnerable/persons in need across Oakland. With great feedback from the community and with more volunteers, there will be a more streamlined and efficient process in November! New goal is to feed 2,000+ homeless persons and distribute 2,000+ hygiene kits.
Bringing Our Voices: Deep East Oakland Listening Session

On December 5, 2016, community members came together for a great discussion on economic empowerment, housing and urban blight. Watch footage from the event to learn what is impacting deep East Oakland residents today.
