Since 2020, Berkeley Lab’s employee community has created a tradition of giving around our annual Winter Food Bank Challenge. This year we will once again host a virtual winter fundraiser for the Alameda County Community Food Bank and the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano. The end of several pandemic-era programs and economic uncertainty has created ongoing food insecurity in the community and as a result, Bay Area food banks have been seeing an increased demand for services. Your time and generosity can help the food banks help those neighbors in need.

The 2023 Winter Food Bank Challenge kicks off on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 28) and runs through Friday, Dec. 22. It will once again run as a friendly competition among 6 teams that bring together research and operations divisions.

Expect more details in Elements and from your team’s co-captains in the coming weeks.
