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.
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.

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.
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.
