  • Come this April, midst of Spring,
  • Is a play about bleak things,
  • Bloody, creepy, wicked screams,
  • Killers troubled by sharp dark dreams,
  • A man and wife, last names Macbeth,
  • Renowned authors of regicidal death,
  • Witchy puppets, ambition wild,
  • Formerly among the mild,
  • Double, double, toil and trouble,
  • Actors bold who shall not mumble,
  • Come and see this ghastly crew,
  • Faces familiar and some new,
  • Healing Garden, Webster Street,
  • Our acting spot is so damn sweet.

Welcome to The Foodbank Players' website!

The Foodbank 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.
