The Food Bank is Expanding

April 29, 2021

The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank Expands San Francisco Warehouse

Warehouse Expansion Will Supported Continued Elevated Need for Food Assistance

San Francisco, CA (April 29, 2021) – The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank will break ground this Spring to add an additional 32,000 square feet to its San Francisco warehouse facilities. Together with the building it acquired in Marin in 2018, this will allow the Food Bank to distribute 75 million pounds annually from its two primary facilities, serving up to 200,000 people per week.

“When the Food Bank started this project 5 years ago the goal was to build for the future, but it turns out we are building for right now,” said Tanis Crosby, Executive Director San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. “Before the pandemic, the Food Bank was already a vital lifeline for 140,000 people every week. The economic crisis brought on by COVID-19 forced thousands more to turn to us for help. We are no longer renovating just to expand, but to sustain – it’s about creating the space necessary to provide food for our neighbors who are making real, practical choices every day about where they’re spending scarce dollars.”

To reach the thousands who needed food assistance for the first time during the pandemic, the Food Bank cobbled together a combination of tents and rented warehouse space. Managing eight separate warehouses is incredibly complex. In addition to the cost related to space, transportation, and coordination, the Food Bank has been less efficient than it could be if it were all in one location.

The expanded facility – which is expected to open in Spring 2022 – is an opportunity to meet those we weren’t serving before over the long term – not just in crisis. It will include:

  • An additional 32,000 square feet, extending into the current parking lot on the north of the facility at 900 Pennsylvania, San Francisco, CA.
  • Two additional loading docks, adding 50% more capacity: from 8 inbound trucks per day to 12-15 per day.
  • 5,200 square feet of cold storage space.
  • The ability to engage up to 500 partner organizations compared to 380 currently.
  • Space to host an additional 20,000 volunteers a year.

The newly renovated and purchased building in Marin was completed in early 2020 – that building will serve as a blueprint for our expansion in San Francisco. But to ensure both facilities not only can hold the food need, but pump it directly to where its most needed, the Food Bank needs to raise an additional $3.5 million to fund vitally important infrastructure like the forklifts, trucks, solar panels, and refrigeration systems.

Welcome Our New Executive Director

January 26, 2021

San Francisco-Marin Food Bank Hires Tanis Crosby as Executive Director

After More Than 32 Years of Leadership, Paul Ash is Retiring

San Francisco and San Rafael, CA (January 26, 2021) – The Board of Directors of the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank hired Tanis Crosby to serve as the organization’s new Executive Director starting January 11, 2021.

Paul Ash is retiring after more than 32 years of leadership. Paul initially planned to retire last year, but due to the unprecedented events of 2020, agreed to stay on to help the Food Bank adapt and respond to the impacts of the pandemic. Going forward Paul will serve as an advisor and consultant to Tanis and the Food Bank as needed.

“During Paul’s three decades of leadership at the Food Bank, the organization’s food distribution increased from just three million pounds of food to 67 million pounds, ensuring hundreds of thousands of Bay Area families had access to food,” said Scott Brubaker, Board Chair of The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. “We are grateful for Paul’s commitment to the Food Bank and the people of San Francisco and Marin. The full extent of his impact is truly immeasurable; he leaves behind an enduring legacy.”

Tanis Crosby previously served as a leader in the YWCA movement for almost 20 years, most recently the CEO of the combined YWCA Silicon Valley and YWCA San Francisco & Marin. Tanis has dedicated her career to advancing the mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. She brings a deep understanding of the root causes of food insecurity to the Food Bank’s mission to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin. Her energy, passion, and dedication will help lead this organization into a transformational next chapter.

“The mission of the Food Bank is critical now more than ever. The pandemic has left many of our neighbors out of work and struggling to feed their families, while crystalizing what we already knew to be true – hunger exacerbates inequities like racial injustice and poverty. We are here to end hunger, to do that we must not only address current demand, but also work together to end the underlying causes of hunger,” said Tanis Crosby, Executive Director, San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. “I’m honored and excited to be part of advancing that mission.”

This is a unique and challenging time in the Food Bank’s history. The need for a strong social safety net has never been more apparent. Under Tanis’ leadership, the Food Bank will remain committed to providing food to all our neighbors who need it most and advocating for stronger policies around food security.

Rep. Huffman Visits The Food Bank

November 6, 2020

Congressman Jared Huffman Visits San Francisco-Marin Food Bank

San Rafael, CA (November 5, 2020) — The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank will welcome Congressman Jared Huffman to its Marin warehouse on Saturday, November 11 during its weekly drive-thru food distribution. The Saturday distribution, which will serve 400 households, is one of several locations distributing food boxes from the USDA’s temporary Farmers to Families Food Box Program.

The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank is now serving 55,000 households per week, nearly double the number we served pre-pandemic. Scaling operations to meet this surge in demand would not have been possible without the support of our federal government through programs like the Farmers to Families Food Box program, CalFresh, Pandemic-EBT and other important food assistance programs. In fact, 40 percent of the food the Food Bank has distributed since the start of the pandemic has come from USDA programs, including Farmers to Families.

The Food Bank is grateful for the ongoing support it has received from Congressman Huffman and other elected officials. As the Farmers to Families program and other USDA food funding sources are set to expire at the end of the year, the Food Bank hopes Congressman Huffman and our California Congressional delegation will continue to prioritize essential food assistance programs.

SPOKESPERSON AVAILABLITY: Paul Ash, Executive Director of the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank and Congressman Jared Huffman will be available for comment.

San Francisco-Marin Food Bank Needs Volunteers

October 14, 2020

San Francisco-Marin Food Bank’s COVID-19 Response Programs at Risk

Decreased Volunteers Coupled with Increased Food Insecurity Threatens Food Bank Programs as Pandemic Wears On

 

SAN FRANCISCO (October 14, 2020) – A shortage of volunteers jeopardizes The Food Bank’s critical COVID-19 response programs. Over the past several weeks the Food Bank was only able to fill approximately 50% of its volunteer slots.

The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank continues to serve nearly double the households compared to before the pandemic. To meet the dramatic need, the Food Bank opened 29 emergency Pop-up Food Pantries and launched its new Pantry at Home program to deliver fresh groceries to seniors sheltering in place to protect their health.

It takes 2,000 volunteers per week – up from 1,200 pre-pandemic – to run these emergency programs.  Without more volunteers, the Food Bank may need to shut down or scale back some of these programs.

“Volunteers are the backbone of our operation, without them many families would be forced to choose between buying food or other essential needs,” said Cody Jang, Senior Community Engagement Manager, San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. “We desperately need volunteers to maintain these programs and continue to serve all our participants, especially those most impacted by COVID-19.”

While the Food Bank saw a sharp drop in volunteers in March due to companies and other organizations ending group volunteer outings, there was an immediate and overwhelming response from individuals in the community. Now, between pandemic fatigue, a phased re-opening in our counties, and the Food Bank’s additional programs is driving another sharp decline.

The Food Bank needs both individuals and organizations to sign up today and consider committing on a weekly basis. Families are also welcome. Volunteers as young as 15 may work at a Pop-up Pantry, in the San Francisco warehouse children as young as 11 on weekdays, eight on Saturdays and four on Sundays are welcome with their parents. At the Marin Warehouse, all volunteers must be at least 11 years old.

Safety of volunteers, staff and participants is a top priority. The Food Bank implements all CDC and county safety guidelines including requiring masks and gloves, conducting shifts outdoors where possible, encouraging social distancing, and frequently cleaning high-touch surfaces.

Food Insecurity on the Rise: COVID-19 Hunger Report

September 10, 2020

San Francisco-Marin Food Bank Data Shows Rising Food Insecurity

COVID-19 Hunger Report Demonstrates Surge in Demand

SAN FRANCISCO (September 10, 2020) – The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank releases its COVID-19 Hunger Report which looks at the rising food insecurity in our community.

Before the pandemic, one in five people was at risk of hunger in San Francisco and Marin. As the crisis has unfolded, the Food Bank has nearly doubled the number of households it serves to 60,000 a week. It is now distributing 54 percent more food per month than pre-shelter-in-place. The report also shows a correlation between the zip codes with the largest increase in unemployment claims and those where demand for Food Bank services spiked.

“The economic ripple effects of COVID-19 have only exacerbated the hunger crisis that already existed,” said Paul Ash, Executive Director, San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. “Historic levels of unemployment are driving many to the Food Bank for the first time. By delivering groceries to seniors and opening new Pop-up Pantries in neighborhoods with the greatest need, we are working to meet the sustained levels of critical need for food for in our community.”

In response to the pandemic the Food Bank raced to transform how it operates – creating new programming that had the health and safety of staff, volunteers, and participants in focus. It opened 28 Emergency Pop-up Pantries across San Francisco and Marin, started delivering weekly groceries to 12,000 seniors sheltering at home, helped thousands apply for CalFresh (food stamps), and advocated for P-EBT and other benefits.

September is Hunger Action Month, a nationwide initiative to raise awareness around hunger in our communities. This report from the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank demonstrates the urgent need to take action to ensure the most vulnerable in our communities can still put food on the table. Those who want to get involved can visit www.sfmfoodbank.org to learn how to volunteer, donate, or advocate.

March 28, 2020

Saturday, March 28 the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank will host its first-ever drive-through food pantry at its Marin warehouse. The pantry will allow us to distribute food with no person-to-person contact to support social distancing.

This pantry is an addition to the pop-up pantries we opened throughout San Francisco and Marin during the past two weeks. The food distribution at our warehouse, along with other pop-up food pantries, is intended to support those who are struggling to buy food due to a recent decrease in wages or hours, and those whose food pantries have closed as a result of COVID-19.

Date: Saturday, March 28

Pantry Hours: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Location: 2550 Kerner Boulevard, San Rafael, CA 94901

Media check-in: Please see Keely Hopkins upon arrival.

Anyone who is struggling to buy food is welcome to attend, no sign-up required. Participants will enter our warehouse via Glacier Point where they will be directed to a pickup location. They will then park their car, open their trunk and a box of groceries including fresh produce, protein and healthy grains will be placed in their trunk by a Food Bank staff member or volunteer. The car will proceed forward a few feet and the participant will then close the trunk before exiting back onto Kerner Blvd.

Anyone whose pantry has closed or who cannot afford food is encouraged to visit our food locator for the most up-to-date pantry information.

The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank Continues to Serve the Community

March 22, 2020

The Food Bank opens several pop-up pantries throughout San Francisco and Marin in order to meet the need for food in our community. This includes six pantries that opened this week – five in San Francisco and one in Marin – and seven additional pantries that will open next week.

 

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 more than 100 of the food pantries in our network of more than 275 pantries have had to close in recent weeks. To fill the gap and ensure our neighbors can still have access to healthy food, the Food Bank has been working hard to open interim pop-up pantries. We served more than 1,800 people in San Francisco just this first week and anticipate those numbers will continue to grow as we expand to new locations.

 

Most pantries will be located at schools that are offering to-go meals for students. All pantries will be open to anyone in the community, participants do not need to sign up or show ID. We will have bags of groceries available for all who need them.
