Donate Your Car

The Food Bank Needs a Car

We spend a lot of time out in the field with our partner organizations and pantries located across San Francisco and Marin and to continue doing this we’re looking for a few good wheels.

Can you help us find a:

- compact or sub-compact vehicle
- Year: 2009 or newer
- 40,000 miles or less
- reliable and in an overall good condition
Please email our Donor Services Department or call 415-282-1900 x353 if you have or know of a car that fits this description.
If your car doesn’t fit the above description but you would still like to donate it (running or not) please consider donating it to the Food Bank. We are working with two organizations to help you turn your wheels into meals for hungry neighbors in San Francisco and Marin. Donating your unwanted auto is easier than selling it and you'll receive a tax receipt for your contribution. It’s simple!

You can donate through Center for Car Donations, or call 1-877-411-3662 and designate the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks as your car donation beneficiary.

Or you can donate through Car Donation Services, by completing their on-line donation form, or call 1-888-686-4483 to donate your vehicle to the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks.

Proceeds from the sale of your car will be directed to us. If your vehicle sells for over $500, you will receive an IRS Form 1098 - C directly from our partner handling the sale of your vehicle. If you have any questions, please email our Donor Services Department or call 415-282-1900 x353.
