The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank is going the extra mile – literally – to encourage better health through our Home-Delivered Groceries program. The program promotes independent living for seniors and neighbors with disabilities by bringing nutritious groceries to their homes.
Delivering groceries every week depends on dedicated partners and volunteers, who pack fresh groceries into reusable bags and venture out into the community to make deliveries. Every bag includes fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy items, a lean protein, and whole grains.
Thanks to the support of the San Francisco Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS), we expanded the program last year and are now averaging close to 1,000 deliveries every week.
Recently, KTVU Reporter Claudine Wong tagged along with a group of volunteers from the Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center as they delivered groceries to neighbors in need.
To give and to receive. I tagged along with the Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center as they delivered groceries to people in need. It is a fairly new program managed by the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank and while it helps quite a few people but only a fraction of the people who qualify. They could use some more help
