We are fundraising to distribute food to families impacted by the coronavirus

The 18 Reasons monthly giving club is a passionate and determined group of monthly donors on a mission to create equity and belonging through the transformative power of home cooking--people like you who believe that every family deserves access to healthy ingredients and cooking skills. This mighty group proves every month how unstoppable we are when we work together.


We can't stand by while hunger grows throughout the Bay Area.


In the spring of 2020, 18 Reasons quickly ramped up our food distribution capacity in order to get ingredients and prepared meals into the hands of low-income families affected by coronavirus restrictions. Almost overnight, we increased our food distribution by over 300%. We are now providing more than 16,500 pounds of healthy food to food-insecure households each month. But the calls keep coming, and we need your help to meet the demand.


Monthly supporters are put food on the tables of our neighbors facing hunger.


In pre-COVID times, we gave away 12 meals’ worth of groceries to each of our 3,500 low-income Cooking Matters students. But, given what we are hearing from our participants, we know that we need to step up and continue to get food to hungry families until this crisis is over.
1 in 4 children and 1 in 6 adults in the Bay Area are at risk of food insecurity due to COVID-19. We have quickly pivoted in order to marshal all our resources toward contactless food distribution and online food education, and with your support, we will be able to continue to be here for our community.

Ongoing monthly gifts afford 18 Reasons a precious resource during this difficult time: stability.


When you join our monthly giving club, you not only help our Cooking Matters participants, you also help 18 Reasons have some predictability when it comes to what funds we will have available each month to help us provide much-needed services.

Thank you for your loyal support and your investment in our community!
