When people think about hunger, they don’t often picture their grandparent.
Nearly three quarters of St. Anthony’s food pantry clients are seniors. Many of them must make the difficult decision between purchasing food and purchasing medicine. And for many, food is medicine.
The next time you are shopping, think of your grandparents and pick up a can to donate to St. Anthony’s.Approximately 25% of San Francisco’s seniors face food insecurity.
We gratefully accept all food pantry donations. We particularly need donations of proteins such as tuna, chicken, peanut butter, canned fish of any kind, protein shakes, nuts or any other shelf stable protein.
Donations are accepted at St. Anthony’s Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:00pm @ 150 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco 94102.
