As the Year Turns…

Thursday, April 16th, 2020

As the year turns, we once again are filled with gratitude for all who make The Food Pantry possible: those who grow and pick our food; those who deliver it to us; those who haul sacks of potatoes, break down boxes, greet visitors, sweep the floors, and invite new volunteers in; those who support us with donations, and those who pray for our entire community. Please give generously: $50 will provide fresh, healthy groceries for a family for a year! You can donate online here, or mail a check to The Food Pantry, 500 DeHaro, San Francisco CA 94107.

What to Do

Thursday, April 16th, 2020

Our people are facing a great deal of change in the coming years. It’s hard to know what to do as individuals, and as communities: yet we know it’s crucial to continue to act. And so we welcome all people to The Food Pantry to feed and to be fed, to take care of each other, and to build community.

Our deepest thanks to our volunteers, to our donors, and to everyone who makes the work of The Food Pantry possible.

In Memory

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

The Food Pantry is saddened to announce the death of our beloved Elizabeth Boileau, whose wisdom, energy, humor and boundless compassion shaped our work. Elizabeth was one of the founding volunteers of The Food Pantry, shopped for us weekly at the Food Bank, helped on Fridays for nearly 18 years, and served on our Board; her husband Robert and sons Patrick and Donovan also became part of The Food Pantry community. Elizabeth was a community activist committed to fighting hunger in San Francisco through her work with us, with Food Runners, and with the Food Security Task Force. We miss her immensely.

A memorial service for Elizabeth Boileau will be held on Sunday, November 25 at 1PM at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, 500 DeHaro, San Francisco CA 94107. We give thanks for Elizabeth’s life, and are grateful for her request that donations to The Food Pantry be made in her honor.

The Food Pantry celebrated sixteen years of work this November, with deep gratitude for all our amazing volunteers, participants and donors.

We know what a hard year it’s been for people in our city, our nation, and around the world. Folks feel unmoored by current events, and frightened as they try to keep their families safe. Amid sorrow, conflict, displacement, political upheaval and economic uncertainty, it remains a great blessing to participate in The Food Pantry––a place where every week, no matter what, all kinds of people come together to share food with their neighbors, and to care for each other in the most basic way.

At The Food Pantry, we believe in building community by empowering people to work together and share food with others. It’s a privilege to be part of such a diverse, growing community–-and we invite you to be part of this meaningful work!

The Food Pantry receives no government, foundation or church money; we’re sustained by people who care about making a real difference. Your donation of $60 will help feed a family for an entire year: donate online, or mail a check to: The Food Pantry, 500 DeHaro, San Francisco CA 94107.

And come volunteer with us on a Friday, any time from 9AM-3PM–all ages are welcome. Thank you!

Note: The Food Pantry will be closed November 25, December 23 and December 30, 2016.
