Mission It is our mission to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in the Tri-Cities of Fremont, Newark and Union City. We provide pathways to financial self-sufficiency by distributing food and encouraging volunteerism in order to improve the quality of life for all in our community, but especially children, low income families and seniors.
About us Tri-City Volunteers is a 1,700 volunteer strong, community-based social services nonprofit organization. We assist anyone struggling with poverty, unemployment, underemployment and food insufficiency. For more than 40 years, we have been transforming the lives of the resource poor residents of Fremont, Newark and Union City through programs and services which build hope, skills and self-esteem, when those dispositions are at their lowest.
Over the past two very tough years, Tri-City Volunteers food bank has risen to the challenge of providing some 5 million pounds of nutritious food per year to the 6,000 local families gripped by economic hardship. Prior to 2010, our food distribution was a meager 1.2 million pounds.
Tri-City Volunteers works to enable low income earners find pathways to a better life:
- Pathways to hunger recovery and economic stability
- Pathways job skills and employment
- Pathways to strong, happy and productive families
