The mission of the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin counties. The Food Bank envisions a community where everyone is able to obtain enough nutritious food to support their own health and well-being and that of their families. The Food Bank addresses hunger head on: from the Pantry Network and Home-Delivered Groceries, to nutrition education classes and CalFresh (food stamps) enrollment. Every week, 32,000 households count on the Food Bank for food assistance.
