Raiders Team Up with ACCFB

The Oakland Raiders are teaming up with the Alameda County Community Food Bank to help their neighbors in need as the region braces for a spike in need during the winter and holiday season.

Staff and families of the Raiders organization will be sorting, screening, boxing and shelving food items in preparation for the busy holiday season in the Food Bank’s main warehouse in Oakland a week prior to Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 15.

In addition, a number of Raiders players will spend their lone day off during the week—the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving— visiting the food bank and assisting in the preparation of food items.

Fans are encouraged to support the Food Bank’s hunger relief efforts on Sunday, November 18th before the Raiders host the New Orleans Saints by visiting their booth in Raiderville from 8:30 am – noon.

Fans are asked to make a monetary donation or donations of healthy non-perishable food items, such as canned meats and vegetables, pasta and sauce, peanut butter and low-sugar cereals.  All proceeds go directly to the Food Bank’s hunger relief efforts.

Since 1985, the Alameda County Community Food Bank has been at the forefront of hunger-relief efforts in the Bay Area. This year the Food Bank will distribute 24 million pounds of food, more than half farm-fresh produce. The Food Bank serves 1 in 6 Alameda County residents by distributing food through a network of 275 food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community organizations.

The Oakland Raiders are hosting a virtual food drive, encouraging fans to donate money to help the Food Bank purchase its most needed items. To participate, please go to https://www.vfd-accfb.org/grouphome.aspx?ID=555
