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.

Volunteer at The Food Pantry

May 20th, 2013

The Food Pantry is an all-volunteer nonprofit–and we’re looking for new volunteers!
We’re located in Potrero Hill in San Francisco, and open on Fridays only. We unload and set up every Friday from 8:30 AM to about 11AM, and open to offer groceries from 12:30 PM until 3:30PM. We welcome your help for morning, afternoon, or both shifts: please note that we can NOT take groups.

We’re looking for friendly, hardworking volunteers who enjoy working with all kinds of people. We especially need multi-lingual (Cantonese/Russian/Spanish-speaking) volunteers, those who can help with heavy lifting, and those who love logistics and organizing! All ages fine; no groups, please.


New Families at the Pantry

April 22nd, 2013

A newly enrolled mother just wrote to us:
“I had a great experience last Friday. The grocery was healthy and exactly what we needed. The kids loved baked sweet potato tonight. We have also been eating the apples and oranges. They make the perfect snack. I want to thank you and your organization again for helping us out. The food pantry’s program cut our grocery bill by half this week. Our family really appreciate it!”
If you or your family need more food, please contact us, or come by The Food Pantry on a Friday. We look forward to meeting you!
