In a high-cost area like the Richmond District, it can be a challenge to make ends meet. Seniors, families with children, and unemployed or low-wage workers make up the majority of those struggling with hunger.

The latest statistics indicate that around 20,000 Richmond District residents struggle with food insecurity. Thanks to our partnership with the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, and through our volunteer-run food pantries, we provide free produce and groceries to over 1000 Richmond District residents each week. While only reaching a small number of residents in need of food, we are proud to now have 5 food programs operating each week and are hopeful to continue to expand our reach, deeper into the neighborhood.
