Distribute groceries to 300 families

with Excelsior Community Food Pantry


We distribute free groceries to about 300 families every Saturday, 10 AM – 1 PM. Our volunteers help to set up the tables and food, distribute the groceries, manage the client line, break down boxes, and clean up after the grocery distribution. There are also leadership opportunities for volunteers (including teens) who would like to make a long-term commitment.

  • SKILLS REQUIRED: None, although being able to speak Cantonese is very helpful (but not at all necessary).
  • Volunteer credit is offered.
  • CONTACT: ameliazw@hotmail.com

  • OTHER INFO: No advance sign-ups are necessary unless you would like to bring a group of 10 or more people. We do operate outdoors, so please dress for the weather and please wear close-toed shoes. If you are looking for volunteer/service hours, please bring a physical paper for the Captain to sign off on after clean-up each and every time you volunteer with us. (We are a fully volunteer-run organization, so keeping track of hours, dates, etc. is beyond our capacity.)
  • WHEN: We are open every Saturday, rain or shine, including holidays. The time commitment is 10 AM - 1 PM.
  • WHERE: San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living, 302 Silver Avenue, San Francisco - FYI: We distribute food in one of the parking lots, so our operation is outdoors (even in the case of rain).
