Whole Foods Market helps the Oakland Community Pantry serve more than 1,400 people this month

Our food pantry wouldn’t be possible without our Spotlight Sponsors who share our values and support our work. Our January partner, Whole Foods Market, really understands the value of healthy food: it's their business. We are thrilled that they chose to support us through their "Nickels for Nonprofits" program, which will enable us to provide healthy food in our pantry for this month.

The pantry has experienced rapid growth, more than doubling in the last two years to serve more than 1,400 people each month. It only costs $5,000 per month to operate the pantry, from acquiring food to staffing to space, but we can only continue to meet that demand with the support of our corporate partners. If your company is interested in tax-deductible sponsorship opportunities, please contact Trevor Smith.
