Serve A Meal

Dining Room Service is more than a meal: it is building community, a place to share stories and smiles. Working with 30-40 fellow volunteers, Individual Dining Room Servers help prepare and provide around 3000 meals each day. Service includes: delivering meals, preparing food and drinks, bussing tables, and helping with other tasks as needed. Volunteers provide our guests with a nutritious meal and a much needed sense of belonging.

THE NUMBERS

ST. ANTHONY'S NOURISHES
SAN FRANCISCO

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.
