People Get Ready

May 15th, 2015

Thanks to all our student volunteers from Live Oak 4th&5th grade and their teacher Naomi, who have been working with us five at a time this year. They all came today, spoke beautifully about their experiences, and serenaded The Food Pantry with “People Get Ready.” We’re so grateful for their participation.

Peace on Earth and Food for All: Happy Holidays from The Food Pantry

December 1st, 2014

If you’re wondering what you can give for the holidays that really means something…consider a gift to The Food Pantry. We provide free, fresh groceries to over 400 families a week in San Francisco. We’re low on bureaucracy and high on participation: the pantry is an an all-volunteer organization, run largely by people who came to get food and stayed to help out.
Just $50 will help feed a family for an entire year. Send a check to The Food Pantry, 500 DeHaro Street, San Francisco CA 94107, and we’ll send a beautiful card to the recipient of your choice, letting them know of your gift.

In Love and Memory

January 14th, 2014

The Food Pantry mourns the death of our faithful friend, Bishop Otis Charles. Otis and his husband Felipe Paris, who died earlier last year, were early and passionate supporters of The Food Pantry, working with us on Fridays and offering their prayers and support. When they were married at St. Gregory’s, they asked friends and family for gifts to The Food Pantry in lieu of wedding presents. “We’re old,” Otis said, “We don’t need another toaster!”
We miss them both. May Otis and Felipe rest in peace and rise in glory, and may all the ways they fed people continue to be a blessing.
