Thank you for joining our Give18 movement!

Did you know that $18 supplies a family in our Cooking Matters program with a full bag of healthy groceries? For many in our community, this is a lifeline.

As we head into the holiday season, we’re looking for 100 people right now to put food on 100 tables. Is this you?

  • A one-time $18 donation will provide a holiday meal this winter
  • A monthly recurring $18 donation ($216 yearly) will help feed a family for a year

About 18 Reasons

Each year, we teach thousands of families to buy, cook, and eat good food on a limited budget.

18 Reasons partners with community organizations, health and medical centers, and schools to bring our teaching teams to students in the communities where they live. Students come from under-invested Bay Area neighborhoods in Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco counties and all programs are free of charge.
