Together, we can create the future of public safety in Alameda County.


Each newsletter we send out has a “By the Numbers” section highlighting the impact of the efforts of our team members on the health and safety of our community. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 shutdown, we wanted to help everyone visualize in a more concrete and personal way what that impact really means.

DSAL’s Food and Wellness Efforts

March 16, 2020 to March 12, 2021



Prepared Meals Delivered to Seniors & Families by 30 vendors:

136,843

If each food container is about 4” tall, that would make a stack over 86 times the height of the Bay Bridge!




Bags of Groceries Delivered:

150,145

That amount is equal to putting a bag of groceries in every seat of the Oakland Arena —seven times!
