Berkeley Food Network
The Berkeley Food Network (BFN) was founded in 2016 as an innovative, community-centered network of agencies that provide services to the food insecure residents of Berkeley, both housed and homeless, in order to close documented gaps in access to food in Berkeley. Our goal is to help establish a foundation of good health from which all Berkeley residents can pursue opportunity. We envision a Berkeley that preserves and fosters its vibrancy and diversity; a city that demonstrates its values through how it treats its most vulnerable, including ensuring that all of its residents are free from hunger and have access to affordable high-quality, healthy food.
