A message from Paul Ash, Executive Director
Happy National Volunteer Week! This is the week when we at the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank celebrate our amazing volunteers – even more than we usually do.
Our staff has created a special video to thank our volunteers. Click below to view.
When I first came to the Food Bank nearly 30 years ago, I had one goal in mind – to end hunger here in our community. While our staff was small, the need for our services was not. It was clear right from the start that we would need the support of volunteers.
Year after year, as we grow and innovate, volunteers continue to be the cornerstone of our work. They are essential connectors between the fresh food that arrives in our warehouses every day and the children, seniors and families who rely on us daily for nutritious food. With the support of our volunteers, the Food Bank will nourish 225,000 neighbors this year.
Because of our volunteers, we have never wavered in our belief that we can provide food for all. For that, we say thank you.
