This event has become a cherished annual tradition, embodying the spirit of community, generosity, and support. As the holiday season approaches, EOBA and EBCOM aim to make a meaningful impact on the lives of Oakland residents facing food insecurity. With the support of generous donors and volunteers, the organizations will provide a household of six with everything needed to prepare a delicious holiday meal.
In a world where food security remains a pressing concern, this event stands as a beacon of hope and unity. Last year’s distribution saw EOBA and EBCOM coming together to serve nearly 1,000 people, and with the continued support of the community, they aspire to repeat this success.
“Our mission is to create a community where everyone can thrive, and that begins with ensuring no one goes hungry during the holiday season. Families are the cornerstone of our youth’s support system, and by providing for them, we set an example that living a life of wellness involves the collaboration and connectivity of all community members,” said EOBA Executive Director Tonya Allen.
The call to action is simple but profound: EOBA and EBCOM are accepting donations to ensure that every family in need receives a holiday meal. Additionally, any additional funds raised will support EOBA’s year-round food distribution program.
