Bay Area food banks deliver groceries to unpaid Coast Guard, TSA workers

If a Coast Guard member is dealing with an illness or other family emergency, the nonprofit Chief Petty Officers Association steps in to help with extra money or support.

It doesn’t usually have to help all of its members at once. In the past week, the Alameda chapter of the organization has helped organize two food pantries that fed 1,650 family members of active-duty Coast Guard and civilians employed at the base, who are all working without a paycheck during the partial government shutdown.

“It’s very stressful,” said Danielle Manor, fundraising chair of the Coast Guard Spouses’ Club in Alameda, which has also been organizing donations. Manor, a preschool teacher who has a 6-year-old son and 4-year-old twins, has been both a volunteer and participant at the food pantry. “They ask, ‘Mommy, why are we taking all this food? Why aren’t we going to the grocery store?’ It’s just really hard to explain.”

Coast Guard members’ first payday since the shutdown started came and went without a check on Tuesday. Since then, several Bay Area food banks have been ramping up donations and increasing volunteer hours to feed them, along with the thousands of other local federal employees who are either furloughed or working without pay during the shutdown, including those from the Transportation Security Administration at Oakland International Airport and the Bureau of Prisons’ Dublin Correctional Institution.

“We’re dipping into our food reserves to meet this need,” said Michael Altfest, head of marketing at the Alameda County Community Food Bank, which has supplied groceries to the smaller Alameda Food Bank in the city of Alameda. “We are treating this as an emergency.”

The Coast Guard is the only branch of the U.S. armed forces to go without pay during the partial shutdown; it’s also the first time in history service members of a branch of the military have had to do so for that reason, according to a statement from Adm. Karl L. Schultz, commandant of the Coast Guard.

The Alameda Food Bank brought seven van-loads of groceries, including 200 turkeys, eggs, milk and produce, to the base for the pantries.

“They’re protecting us and taking care of us, and we’re going to take care of them as long as they need us to,” said Cindy Houts, director of the Alameda Food Bank, of the service members.

Houts said that other furloughed government workers have called requesting assistance during the shutdown. The food bank has also signed up eight Coast Guard families as new regular clients because their normal salary still qualifies them for assistance.

More for you

Over 300 Coast Guard active-duty members work at the base in Alameda, and 200 families reside in Coast Guard housing on the island. Rick Paauwe, president of the Chief Petty Officers Association branch in Alameda, said those at most risk are Coast Guard members married to another Coast Guard member, as well as those just out of boot camp who earn less than $2,000 per month.

“Newer families that still haven’t gotten themselves established or don’t have savings — what are they going to do?” said Manor, whose husband is a petty officer first class who works at the Coast Guard’s industrial production facility in Alameda. “A lot of military families, including us, live paycheck to paycheck.”

Manor said she explained to her twins that the people of Alameda are helping families that can’t afford food right now.

“In a way, it’s kind of a blessing to see how much of our community is supporting us,” Manor said. “I get to teach my kids that. That’s the upside in this hard situation.”

Middle school teacher benefits from Gift of Sight program

Since 2002, Furlong Vision Correction’s Gift of Sight program has provided more than $1,150,000 in services to improve people’s vision and quality of life.

“We are grateful and privileged to be able to improve the lives of these very deserving individuals,” said Dr. Michael  Furlong, the program’s founder and clinical medical director.

Anna Samantha Bautista, a 2021 patient, grew up in Manila, the Philippines. Her parents and brother moved to the United States, but she had to stay on the island until she was 5 and had been granted a visa. She began teaching middle school for the Alameda Unified School District this past August as part of an internship program to receive her credentials.

“In my classroom, we actively practice respect and kindness as we delve into diverse and inclusive topics” said Anna Samantha. “My vision is better than ever. I can’t believe how much I can read from just opening my eyes. Sometimes, I try to push up my nonexistent glasses. Driving on 880 is so much easier. Teaching my students is easier. I can use all my senses in class and in my life now without restrictions.”

Gasoline-powered leaf blowers banned in town after 2022

The City Council has adopted a law banning the use and sale of gasoline-powered leaf blowers in Alameda, which becomes effective Jan. 1, 2023.

“Gasoline-powered” means all gasoline, diesel and other leaf blowers powered by combustion engines. The use and sale of other leaf blowers, such as electric and battery-powered models, is not banned. Under the new law, the city may issue citations for violations of the ban. Property owners are equally responsible for compliance with this new law, meaning that a violation for using a gasoline-powered leaf blower may result in citations to equipment operators, landscaping companies employing the operators and property owners. Businesses in Alameda must also stop selling such equipment and post notices about the ban on their premises or a citation could be issued.

The city will educate residents and businesses about this new ban over the coming months. Property owners who use landscapers should be sure that the company they hire is aware of the new law and will comply when performing work on their property. For more information, visit alamedaca.gov/leafblowerban online.

Warriors Host Food & Fund Drive At Alameda County Food Bank

October 16, 2012
Warriors Host Food & Fund Drive At Alameda County Food Bank

Richard Jefferson and Carl Landry met fans and signed autographs for those who made donations.

The Warriors marched into Alameda County Community Food Bank on Friday, October 12 to help prepare residents of Alameda County for the busy fall and winter months.

Golden State forwards Richard Jefferson and Carl Landry, along with 20 front office staff, toured their local community’s food bank to learn how the organization is able to serve 49,000 Alameda County residents on a weekly basis.

“It’s wonderful to host the Warriors today because it engages our community and builds awareness to the desperate needs of over a quarter million residents in Alameda county,” said food bank Volunteer Coordinator Sheila Burks.

With 83% of residents needing fast food and gas station groceries to survive, the Alameda County Community Food Bank seeks to provide nourishing and easy to prepare meals to the 1 out of 6 county residents that rely on emergency food packs and supplemental provisions every day.

“To hear that 1 out of 6 kids in Alameda County is fed from [this food bank], and without this place they will go hungry, it means we need this food bank to support our future,” said first-year Warrior Carl Landry.

After the tour, the Warriors staff was tasked with filling 2 pound bags with anasazi beans to be distributed to families in need during the winter months. Jefferson, Landry and the Warriors Helping Hands volunteers, which included members from the Warrior Girls, were then tasked with separating and bagging pallets of green tomatoes.

“It’s important for the Warriors Helping Hands program to be here helping in the community because we are in the season of giving, and we know that the fall and winter months are when some families struggle and we can help those who need it,” claimed Warrior Girl Anabelle.

The Warriors’ contribution to the food bank helps provide sustenance to 275 Alameda county member agencies, consisting of schools, soup kitchens, food pantries and various community programs.

“When someone like the Warriors come to our food bank, it’s the difference between hope and choice, because their presence puts hope back on the table for many people and families who know that people care about you and are here to help. The team’s visit inspires [our staff] and it inspires the broader community through their service,” said Burks.

After their volunteer efforts, Jefferson and Landry hosted a Food & Fund Drive, meeting fans and signing autographs for those who made a donation of $19, representing the number of days until the team’s opening night in Phoenix. 12-year NBA veteran Richard Jefferson was happy to take this time to contribute to the food bank and was amazed by the amount of local residents who benefit from it.

“What stood out for me from today was that you don’t need a natural disaster to help others. There are people in your local area that need to be helped every single day and that you can reach out to.”

Alameda County Community Food Bank Executive Director Suzan Bateson was ecstatic that the Warriors could meet other food bank volunteers and could contribute to making the organization’s vision of not allowing a county resident to go hungry this fall and winter a reality.

“When a team like the Warriors supports us with their time and our staff is able to kick back and laugh and have a great time with the players, it’s a win-win for Alameda County and our food bank.”

Alameda Sun

Like every other community organization in Alameda, Alameda Backyard Growers’ (ABG) Project Pick faced a dilemma when COVID-19 shut down the Bay Area back in March. How could volunteers continue to meet in large groups to pick backyard fruit trees at several locations? How could ABG keep volunteers and fruit donors safe? Most importantly, how could ABG’s efforts continue to support the Alameda Food Bank (AFB), which was facing a nearly tenfold increase in clients after the pandemic hit? The Food Bank went from serving about 800 families each month to up to 1,800 each week!

ABG decided to hand out extendable picking equipment to a smaller group of volunteers. They worked in groups of two or three within their own “bubbles,” wore masks and encouraged homeowners to stay inside while they worked.

Thanks to these dedicated volunteers Project Pick has donated more than 4,000 pounds of locally grown fruit to AFB since the pandemic started, and a total of more than 7,400 pounds donated so far in 2020.

Project volunteers who deserve thanks include: Ann Naffzinger; Madeleine and Rachel Canavese; Angie, Greg and Hadley Klein; Alison Limoges; Amy Fraher; Daniel, Priscilla and Timothy Chung; Nina Bacey; Amy Kalkstein; Mary Sotelo; Jennifer McGaffey; Trang Truong; and Birgitt Evans.

ABG is thrilled to support AFB and, according to AFB Executive Director Cindy Houts, the feeling is mutual. She said they are pleased to accept local home-grown fresh produce, knowing that Project Pick helps to stop food waste, supports carbon-storing backyard trees, and generates community good will and generosity.

“The symbiotic relationship between AFB and ABG benefits the whole community,” said Houts. 

Alamedans can help continue this important mission of feeding hungry neighbors. Donate money to AFB at www.alamedafoodbank.org or pick your own fruit and Project Pick will pick up and deliver it to the Food Bank for you.

ABG is one of just a few organizations currently allowed to donate fresh produce to the Food Bank. Individual donations are not currently accepted. Donating 50 pounds of a fruit like apples, for example, can save the Food Bank roughly $200 they would have to spend to buy the fruit.

ABG gratefully accepts fruit donations, under these guidelines:
* Fruit must be firm (no figs or other mushy fruit).
* Fruit may not have holes, bruises or critter bite marks.
* Do not pick up fruit that has fallen to the ground. It should come straight off the tree.
* If you are unable to pick the fruit yourself, ABG’s team of volunteers can come out to help.

ABG thanks the generous donors who have contributed this year. Contact Project Pick at [email protected] about donating fruit. Or consider donating money or time to AFB —they can still use additional volunteers. We will get through this crisis as the caring community we are while looking out for our neighbors in need!

Food is Medicine.

If you are in need of food, you are not alone. Food insecurity is widespread among older adults. According to Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks, nearly five million seniors in the United States worry about having enough food. Senior hunger raises the risk of chronic health conditions, depression, and homelessness.

The Mercy Brown Bag Program distributes groceries to seniors throughout Alameda County twice a month, free of charge. Depending on availability, each bag is brimming with nutritious items, such as fresh milk, tomatoes, green peppers, potatoes, carrots, oatmeal, plums, canned goods, low-sodium spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, tuna, eggs and more. Throughout the year, generous donors help us add frozen chicken or ham, stuffing, cranberry sauce and other treats.

Am I Eligible?

We are happy to provide nutritious groceries to our neighbors in Alameda County who are 60 years old and older and have incomes that are less than 232% of the federal poverty line. These are the income guidelines for our USDA sites:

  • For a one-person household, the maximum monthly income is $2,498
  • For a two-person household, the maximum monthly income is $3,376
  • For a three or more person household, the maximum monthly income is $4,253
  • The maximum income increases with additional family members.

If you are in need of food and fit the above qualifications, please come to one of our sites that are open to the public. Click here to view a map and find the location closest to you, along with the distribution days and times. You may also contact the Mercy Brown Bag Program at 510.534.8540 ext. 369.
