The Food Bank is a lifeline
Every day we distribute enough food for 105,000 meals — that's more than 46 million pounds this year. It takes a comprehensive approach and a network of 450 partners to make it happen.
It starts at 3 a.m. when the warehouse crew arrives. At 6 a.m. the trucks are rolling, loaded with nutritious foods headed for hundreds of locations across San Francisco and Marin. By 7 a.m. the Food Resources team is working to locate tons more food for next week, and the Programs staff is out in the community doing nutrition education and consulting with our 450 partner organizations.
Our work is focused on bringing wholesome, nutritious foods to people in ways that are respectful, supportive and effective. Explore this section to learn about the extent of hunger in our community and what we're doing about it.
Right here in San Francisco and Marin, 1 in 4 residents is unable to afford all the food they need.
