A number of generous volunteers made this our busiest and most productive December yet.
On December 15, Food of God prepared a hot lunch for Hope Task Force‘s Day of Service For Our Unhoused Neighbors at the West Oakland Youth Center. This event, spearheaded by inspiring community organizer Free Brown, gave us the opportunity to connect with people from all over Oakland. It was a pleasure to partner with so many inspiring service organizations like Lava Mae, Simply the Basics, and Lifelong Medical Care. A special thank you to our team of volunteers who spent several days working to make a hot meal for 300 possible!
We had a great time at our annual lunch and holiday giveaway on December 20, 2018. We enjoyed the holiday spirit with our community as we distributed clothes, hygiene items, and handwritten cards. Many grateful individuals and families stopped by to pick up some much-needed supplies before the holidays. Once again it was a group effort to bring all the pieces together and we’re grateful to everybody who pitched in!
