Food Pantry

Some of the main obstacles I've been through is not having enough food. The staff has been so helpful and they are like family.

About the Davis Street Food Pantry

Our food distribution program is one of the main staples of Davis Street and is an essential part of our mission statement. The pantry supplies food to over 1,000 households, serving over 2,500 individuals, and receives over 15,000 lbs. of food in donations – every month.

Davis Street Food Pantry provides delicious, nutritious food—free of charge—to families and individuals in need throughout our community. A typical food box or bag may contain: canned foods, pasta, rice, dairy products, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits and meat products. Bags vary depending on availability of items.

Thanks to donations from Alameda County Food bank, local individuals, farmers, businesses and grocery stores, we are able to provide this much needed program to the community.

Who is eligible?

Anyone who needs food, meets low-income requirements, resides in San Leandro or the Eden area, including San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, Ashland and Cherryland of Hayward and can show proof of residency and proof of income.
