We live in a part of the world where there is great abundance. We also live in a time of significant economic disruption pushing more Tri-Valley families into food insecurity. We want to encourage Blue Oaks families to help. Blue Oaks supports two churches that distribute food locally:
- Valley Bible Church of Pleasanton
- The Well in Livermore
You can help in three ways:
- Give money to the Compassion Fund for these churches and Open Heart Kitchen.
- Drop off purchased items at the Blue Oaks offices.
- Volunteer your time to help receive and distribute donated food items.
The food pantries need canned and unopened boxed or bagged items only – nothing perishable. For example, canned fruits and vegetables, canned/bag tuna, granola bars, small peanut butter, instant mashed potatoes, dry soup, and macaroni and cheese boxes.
You may order food at your favorite online retailer and have the items shipped to the Blue Oaks offices, or you may shop at your favorite local stores and drop the items off in the lobby of the church offices.
We will distribute food throughout November. If you’d like to volunteer to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
