Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) today unveiled a new organizational logo – the first logo change since the Food Bank’s founding in 1985. The logo is accompanied by a new tagline, “Until everyone’s fed,” reflecting the Food Bank’s unwavering commitment to ending hunger. Additionally, the Food Bank also unveiled their fully redesigned website (accfb.org). The logo, tagline and website were designed to better reflect ACCFB’s mission and bold approach to ending hunger, while recognizing and embracing the role of the community in its efforts.

I’m excited at how well our new logo reflects who and what we are today – and our continued evolution.”
