HAFP Food Pantry Open for Business
Our weekly farmersí market-style distribution allows clients to select the foods that best meet their familiesí needs.
From fresh fruits and vegetables to canned foods to bread and rice, each client receives much needed, nutritious foods that they otherwise cannot afford. We make a special effort to provide foods that can be used by those without permanent homes or cooking facilities, since they are part of the clientele we serve.
This year we have given thousands of bags and boxes of food to hungry men, women, and children. Join us and get involved this holiday season!
The Haight Ashbury Food Program currently operates a weekly Pantry Program in partnership with the San Francisco Food Bank. Weekly farmers´ market-style distribution allows clients to select the foods that best meet their families´ needs. From fresh fruits and vegetables to bread and rice, each client receives much-needed, nutritious foods that are otherwise not affordable.
Days of Operation
The Pantry operates between 12pm and 2pm every Saturday, except when a Saturday is followed by a Monday holiday (when the Food Bank is closed for deliveries).
If you would like to patronize our Pantry, please arrive between 12 and 2 to fill out our intake form. At that time, you will be given a half-hour time slot for future weeks. This helps us to keep lines to a minimum, and to serve you best.
If you have a donation for the Pantry Program, please call our Program Director at 415-566-0366 to make arrangements. Generally, donations work best if we can plan them into our purchasing for the week, and/or if they non-perishable items. Please make sure that donations consist of foods that are not expired, and that you would be willing to serve to your own family. Spoiled foods cost us money to dispose of, so they do not help.
