15,000 people, including women and children, live on the street and in shelters, and thousands more use free food programs to stretch budgets that don’t quite cover food, clothing, medical expenses, and San Francisco rents.

12,000 families and individuals live in rooms without kitchens in San Francisco.

3,000 meals served daily at St. Anthony’s Dining Room. Every year, more people turn to St. Anthony’s for help.

100 years ago, the original St. Anthony’s Dining Room was built to be used as an auto repair shop. While the need increases, the building and equipment get older. Old equipment and an obsolete building design restrict and slow down service.

40% of all the free meals served in San Francisco are served by St. Anthony’s.

1 dining room in San Francisco serves free meals every day of the year--the Dining Room at St. Anthony’s.
