Warriors and Lucky Supermarkets Team Up for a Winning Food Drive 

March 13 was a beautiful day in Oakland – and not just because of the warm weather. Hundreds of supporters flocked to an annual fan-fest food and fund drive hosted by Lucky Supermarkets and the Golden State Warriors. Warriors star players Klay Thompson and Zaza Pachulia were on-hand to greet excited fans, who took part in lively games and other fun. (Watch Lucky's video of the event.) 

The festivities were capped off with a check presentation from Lucky and the Warriors. Collectively, fans and Lucky shoppers provided enough for more than 78,000 meals! Thank you to our partners for their commitment to a hunger-free community.

Ready, set, fundraise.

The weather is getting warmer, and your running shoes, swim goggles or bike tires are itching to go for a spin.

HealthCares Week

Shout out to Siemens and all our health care partners!

Siemens was one of the health care and bio tech companies that gave their time, energy and expertise during HeathCares Week in early March. Nine incredible companies sorted produce, learned about our work and brainstormed partnership opportunities.
