The Food Bank is a leading advocate for effective government programs that assist people at risk of hunger. We also conduct cutting-edge research to determine the food needs of San Francisco and Marin communities, part of a comprehensive effort to ensure that no one goes hungry.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for people who struggle to put food on the table to participate in the food assistance programs for which they are eligible. Our approach is simple: we identify challenges and opportunities in public food assistance programs, analyze the issues using a data-driven approach, develop and advocate for effective solutions, and monitor progress.
We all benefit when everyone has enough financial resources to buy food. That’s why the Food Bank advocates to make sure CalFresh serves every eligible person in a way that is simple, seamless and integrated with other programs.
Local policy and funding are critical to ensuring that everyone has access to food. We work to assess the local food security landscape, prioritize solutions, and advocate for policies and local funding to support a diverse array of food assistance programs.
