Welcome to the Food Bank Players' website!
The Food Bank Players is a vibrant coalition of theater artists, an essential community organization and neighbors helping neighbors. Everything we do is designed to build community, from our financial support of the Alameda Food Bank to our captivating, and free, productions in the Alameda Healing Garden to our diverse casts of professionals, up-and-coming actors and folks who haven’t been on stage in 40 years.
The spirit of the actors is the engine for our work, from sharing costumes to running lines to helping stow the set pieces after a show. We range in age, background and experience, but share a love of theater and a commitment to helping those experiencing food insecurity.
We are also supported by remarkable community members. They work behind the curtain with publicity, promotion and production. Our amazing partners include The West End Arts District, The West Alameda Business Association, Calafia Taqueria and The Fireside Lounge.
