Berkeley students, district employees, and their families are invited to our family pantry stocked with bread and a variety of produce, free of charge.
Right now, the family pantry is open 2pm-4pm on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month, at the South Berkeley Senior Center across Ashby from Malcolm X, at 2939 Ellis.
Children who come to the family pantry can work on an art project while their parents and guardians shop. Some personal-care products are also available. We are planning to offer a bigger selection of food in the coming months.
PLEASE BRING A BAG AND PARK LEGALLY, if you are driving.
WE ALSO DELIVER PREPACKED FOOD BAGS to after-school and summer-school programs. Interested? Contact BUSD Family Engagement and Equity Specialist Jocelyn Foreman at 684-4100 or via the button below.
