Make a Donation to Support Your Local Sustainable Food System
Did you know that food pantries like the Haight Ashbury Food Program are part of your local sustainable food system? Pantries divert waste from landfills. Farmer’s partnerships with Food Banks across the country give them a place to donate their unsold products. It’s the perfect way to keep it local!
Merchant & Volunteer Info
The Haight Ashbury Food Program has relationships with local grocery and other stores in the area that go back decades in some cases. We assist them by diverting waste from landfills and saving them waste disposal costs. They assist us by boxing up perishable food that is still edible but has reached its shelf life, and helping us distribute it to those in need.
Volunteers, including some from our partner Food Runners, pick up perishables like bread and fruit, and bring them to our Pantry on Saturday mornings. Like clockwork!
During this unusual time, we ask that our volunteers delivering food to the Pantry wear gloves and masks when handling food as they bring it our way.
If you have food you want to donate, we welcome hearing from you! Please use our volunteer form.
