The Berkeley Food Pantry is a ministry of Berkeley Friends Church, in cooperation with other churches and synagogues in Berkeley and the Alameda County Food Bank which distributes a variety of food items to residents of Berkeley and Albany who have emergency needs. Recipients are referred to the Food Pantry by social service agencies in Berkeley, such as the City of Berkeley Department of Health, by drop-in centers, the Center for Independent Living and the Over 60 Health Care Clinic.
To qualify for food the recipient must present a photo I.D.or driver's license as evidence of a residency in Berkeley or Albany and a referral from an agency such as one of the above.
The Pantry distributes food for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (following USDA procedures), as well as donated and purchased food; these purchases are made possible by contributions and grants.
The Pantry is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 2-4 p.m
The Montessori based philosophy recognizes
and celebrates the individuality of each child, nurturing inquisitiveness,
creativity and self-reliance. The whole child develops at Cedar Creek,
where making friends is just as important as learning to read, and sliding
down the pole is applauded as much as counting to one hundred.
