A month where people all across America came together to stand against hunger, share concern and awareness, volunteer, donate goods or pledge financial support to food banks. All of us at CCAH are proud to stand with the San Francisco – Marin Food Bank. The Food Bank is one of our newest clients, and we can’t think of a better organization to recognize and share the amazing work they are doing to end hunger and address food insecurity in San Francisco and Marin. For over 30 years the Food Bank has been distributing food, transforming lives and advocating for policies that address the root cause of hunger and strengthen the social safety net.
In honor of Hunger Action Month, members of our team recently volunteered at a pop-up food pantry in North Beach. To meet increased demand during the pandemic, the Food Bank opened 20 temporary pop-up pantries across San Francisco and Marin to serve ten times more people than their 240+ regular food pantries. Like the regular food pantries, with their partners, the Food Bank brings fresh groceries directly into the neighborhoods where they are needed the most and caters to populations ranging from families to seniors.
In addition to the 20 pop up pantries and 240+ regular food pantries, the Food Bank provides weekly groceries to over 55,000 households, distributes 1,300,000 meals every week and delivers groceries to over 10,000 households. The Food Bank also advocates for policies and programs that make transformative change.
