HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Thanks for taking action to fight hunger! As many as 1 in 4 people in San Francisco and Marin faces hunger every day. You can’t see on the outside who is hungry, but hunger is everywhere — at schools, at work, among grandparents, and neighbors. With your help, we are going to put a stop to hunger. By raising money with your lemonade stand we can feed children, seniors, and families right here in our community.

DESCRIPTION

A lemonade stand is a great way to support the Food Bank’s efforts to feed neighbors in need. All you need is a pair of scissors, a piece of string, a pitcher, cups, some lemons and sugar, and a busy street corner or event. Thank you for taking action to fight hunger!
