San Francisco Food Bank – August 20, 2009

The San Francisco Food Bank’s volunteer community provides vital support to our mission of ending hunger in San Francisco.

We provide donated and purchased food to over 600 non-profit agencies, enabling them to give nutritious meals or supplemental groceries to thousands of low-income families and individuals in our community.

Throughout the year, we rely on the support of more than 12,000 volunteers to sort community food donations, stock pantry shelves, repackage bulk items, label cans, glean produce, and pack food boxes.

This year we will distribute 33 million pounds of food, enough for 70,000 meals each day! Find out more about the San Francisco Food Bank online at
