...in Oakland, California, the agency APEB has gone from delivering food to 40 households at the start of April to more than 80 by early May. Says the agency’s Rob Newells, “Depending on what we pick up from the Alameda County Food Bank each week, households get three to five bags including fresh produce; frozen proteins like chicken, fish, and beef; canned goods; bread; pasta; dairy; and eggs; when available.”
Plus, every two weeks, the agency’s outreach team delivers nonperishable food, snacks, and cloth face masks to homeless encampments.
