Media Coverage: 9-1-1 Day of Service in San Francisco

September 11, 2018

In 2018 the Food Bank was invited to participate and benefit from the first ever 9-1-1 Day of Service in San Francisco.  It consisted of thousands of volunteers streaming into pier 35 to help bag and box meals for needy families.  Dignitaries like then House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, and San Francisco Mayor London Breed stopped by and pitched in themselves.

The event drew media attention from:
