Who We Are

How We Got Started

The Haight Ashbury Food Program (HAFP) was founded in San Francisco in 1983 as a neighborhood response to hunger.

The organization consists of one staff member, a board of directors, volunteers from the surrounding community, and private, foundation and corporate donors of monetary and in-kind support.

We are committed to sustaining a program based on compassion, respect and empowerment.

Our Mission

HAFP’s mission is to support the principle that freedom from hunger is a right, not a privilege. We exist to provide meals and referral services to those in need while fostering a sense of belonging and self worth for all involved.

Staff & Board

Our Board of Directors is as follows:

  • President: Jennifer Sramek

What We Do

We exist to provide meals and referral services to those in need while fostering a sense of belonging and self worth for all involved.  See how we have been providing good food to families since 1983.

The Food Pantry

Every Saturday from 12pm - 2pm, we feed local families with our farmers' market-style distribution center in the Upper-Haight neighborhood of San Francisco

Food for All

We are part of a network of programs that help to ensure that all San Franciscans have food on the table.

Past Programs

Since 1983, the Haight Ashbury Food Program served hundreds of hot meals each day, four days per week. The Community Kitchen served more than 1 million meals during its operation.
