Thanksgivings

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

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.

People Get Ready

Friday, 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.

On Friday, January 16, we’ll gather at The Food Pantry at 10:30 AM to remember our friend and friend Lauren Coleman, who died last week. Lauren was a volunteer at the pantry for nearly ten years: her warmth and laughter will be missed. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
