We believe everyone should have access to healthy, organic produce. That’s why Numi Foundation is mobilizing now for emergency food relief. Half of Oakland public school students rely on free or reduced lunch, and when schools closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our community’s families lost a crucial source of nutrition. Within just two weeks of schools closing, we started delivering our first bags of fresh, organic produce to high-need families unable to make it to food banks or free food distribution sites.

With our local partners OUSD, Growing Together, Mandela Partners, Sanzuma, and SEI, so far we’ve delivered over 637,000 pounds of fresh, organic, culturally relevant produce to 6,000 high-need families, including 1,841 low-income seniors in Oakland, San Francisco, Marin, and Richmond. We focus on feeding African American, Latino, and Southeast Asian families–especially those who are undocumented or unable to access stimulus funding, unemployment benefits, or food stamps.

Our goal is to keep this program growing throughout the Bay Area and feed even more families. But we can’t do it alone! Consider making a tax-deductible donation to Numi Foundation today, where your dollars go directly to organic food relief, supporting both struggling families and farmers:
