HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The Food Bank distributes food through a network of 450+ partners. These organizations, for example, schools, churches, and community centers, are located throughout San Francisco and Marin, aiming to provide accessibility to community members where they live or work. These partners are responsible for organizing, staffing, and leading their distribution. In general, our partners receive and distribute food on a weekly schedule, and some would benefit from a long-term volunteer.

DESCRIPTION

Get involved in the community – help a partner on a long-term basis with their weekly pantry distributions.
