Sort food at a Food Bank

Family Vacation Luxury voluntourism

The vision is to end hunger in San Francisco. It’s a huge job that’s only gotten more difficult as the community struggles to come out of a prolonged period of economic difficulty, with high numbers of people pushed to the point of poverty.

Thankfully, thousands of caring donors and supporters have rallied around and the operations have scaled up to meet the need. With 25,000 volunteers each year, and 450 partner organizations throughout the community, this is a vital lifeline for people in need of food assistance.

When you volunteer here, you will help sort and package the food that gets distributed to food pantries, children’s snack programs and soup kitchens throughout San Francisco and Marin – enough for more than 100,000 meals each day.

Projects typically involve gleaning fresh produce, repackaging bulk food into family-sized quantities, assembling grocery boxes for seniors, and sorting donations from food drives and grocery stores. In a single shift, you’ll be helping thousands of people get the food they need.
