About Mercy Brown Bag

"Seniors helping seniors" is at the heart of Mercy Brown Bag Program, supported by Elder Care Alliance’s Mercy Retirement & Care Center. For almost 40 years, our volunteers have lovingly filled and distributed bags of fresh produce, healthy grains, canned goods, lean proteins and more.

We sort, pack and distribute groceries to 17 sites throughout Alameda County.

Food insecurity is an alarming trend in the region, where half of all seniors are unable to make ends meet. High rents in the county—coupled with low incomes and poor health or disabilities—cause seniors to skip meals or choose between food and their lifesaving medications.
