Tuesday - SF Food Bank - Food Sorting

The San Francisco Food Bank provides food to over 450 local non-profit organizations and weekly groceries to 30,000 families. This year it expects to distribute over 45 million pounds of food.

The Food Bank relies on volunteers to sort, repack and shelve over 390 tons of food each week - this would normally require 68 full-time employees.

We'll be there for the evening shift which runs from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.  Our work might include:
• Sorting and packing fruit
• Repackaging bulk goods (such as rice or beans)

Wear closed-toe shoes and avoid loose clothing.  A sweatshirt or extra layer is recommended, as the temperature in the warehouse can be quite cool.

Parking is available in the parking lot or on the street.

Definite RSVPs are important. Please try not to cancel, but if you must, let us know as soon as possible - thanks!

    HUGE thanks to all the volunteers for coming out last night. I'm sorry I wasn't able to personally connect with everyone, but hope you all had as much fun as I did. Next time I will know how to take muni correctly and get there on time :)

    Hi everyone! Really looking forward to tomorrow's volunteer event at the SF Marin Food Bank! Hope you all can still make it. If not, please do change your RSVP ASAP as we require a solid commitment from our volunteers.

    Also, just a quick reminder that we all must wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable (and warm) clothes as we will be working in a sometimes chilly warehouse. Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

    Cheers and hope to see you all there!

      I suspect this muni train is not going to get me to the food bank on time but it's hard to tell.

      Volunteers- I am very sorry but running late. Should be there in 10 or 15 min. Apparently I am not very muni savvy as I got on the wrong train :( be there soon!
