We have committed to making a weekly food donation to the East Oakland Collective’s food distribution program, and you can join us. During these uncertain times, we wanted to provide an option for people to donate to those in need. Now on your order form, you will see a $5 donation to EOC. This donation will provide either 2 tamales or 2 enchiladas for the EOC to distribute.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, East Oakland Collective (EOC) has expanded their food and supply distribution program to also address the widened food insecurity amongst seniors and low to middle income families across Oakland. EOC provides meals to those in need Monday through Friday.

The East Oakland Collective (EOC) is a member-based community organizing group invested in serving the communities of deep East Oakland by working towards racial and economic equity. With programming in civic engagement and leadership, economic empowerment and homeless services and solutions, they help amplify underserved communities from the ground up.

Recent media coverage of EOC’s food service expansion.

EOC has expanded its service base and now serves people with compromised immune systems, low-income families of color and seniors. EOC provides over 1,000 meals a week to over 500 residents.
