Food Drive for Alameda County Community Food Bank-- Virtual Food Drive Flyer

The Office of University Diversity and the Center for Community Engagement are sponsoring two food drives for the Alameda County Community Food Bank to demonstrate our campus’ commitment to inclusion and community as a part of the Week of Inclusive Excellence, February 23rd – February 27th. The virtual food drive enables you to donate right from the comfort of your computer—it kicks off February 9th. Go to and find our group name CSUEB in the drop down menu to shop. If you prefer to bring in food donations, during the Week of Inclusive Excellence there will be donation barrels across campus conveniently located for you to drop off food items, tentative locations include: Old Union, Library, VBT, SA, RAW, KPE, Bookstore, New Union. Please check back here for barrel location updates.
