San Francisco Food Bank Pop-up Pantries

“Every week, our pantry network distributes fresh, seasonal produce, lean protein, grain, and shelf-stable items to anyone who is struggling to buy food. During the COVID-19 crisis, we have launched pop-up pantries that are open to the public; no need to show ID or sign in to receive groceries every week.Due to the “shelter in place” order, we ask that you only attend one pantry and send one person per household to pick up groceries.”
