Use our Food Locator tool to find food assistance in San Francisco and Marin. Our tool can help you locate weekly free groceries, monthly food boxes for seniors, one-time emergency food, or help to enroll in CalFresh (food stamps).

CalFresh is a nutrition assistance program for individuals and families. Formerly known as food stamps and known nationally as SNAP, CalFresh benefits are deposited monthly on an EBT card, which works like a debit card, to purchase food at your local supermarket, grocery store, or farmers market. As of June 1st, people who receive SSI/SSP are eligible to apply for CalFresh. Our CalFresh Outreach team is ready to assist you with your application today!

The time and location of Pop-up Pantries may change. Please check back often for updates.
Please bring ID (if possible) to sign-up onsite.
Groceries delivered to your door every week.
If you are an adult (18 years old or older) with a disability who is low-income, you may qualify for Home-Delivered Groceries.

Groceries will be delivered by a Food Bank volunteer or your IHSS provider once a week.
