California Association of Food Banks
The California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) was founded in 1995. Our mission is to end hunger in California, and our vision is a well-nourished and hunger-free California, where all people have enough food to lead a healthy life. We work with over 40 food bank members and 6,000 charities to serve more than 2 million low-income people throughout the state.
California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) is a membership organization of 41 food banks from throughout the state with a shared mission to end hunger in California and a firm commitment to providing cutting-edge leadership in the anti-hunger community.
Our major programs include Farm to Family, which works with growers and packers to provide fresh produce to food banks; statewide programs for food stamp outreach and enrollment; robust state and federal advocacy efforts; produce education; and member services that offer assistance with special projects as well as technical support.
CAFB is governed by a Board of Directors elected from among its membership. Our Board Members come from food banks throughout the state, representing the broad diversity of our membership.
