Community Outreach

During these challenging times, it is important to support our neighbors in need.  Since Covid-19 has disrupted the event industry and increased Bay Area unemployment rates, we’ve shifted our focus from events to community outreach through food stability and donation programs.

During the month of May, Facebook partnered with various restaurants by purchasing & donating over 10,000 meals to frontline workers, nonprofits & schools.  In addition,  our ongoing Community Mobile Market, donates over 1,000 farm bags per week to local nonprofits for distribution to at risk families.
