JFCS Food Banks

Help us ensure that everyone in our community has enough to eat. Find out how to contribute food to your local JFCS Food Bank >

If you or someone you care about needs assistance, please call us at 415‑449‑3700.

JFCS Food Banks offer nutritious, high-protein food to seniors on fixed incomes, adults with disabilities, young families with low incomes, and other individuals and families facing temporary crises.

Food support is available in all regions that JFCS serves through Food Banks and grocery store gift cards. Food Banks are located at our offices in San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo, and Palo Alto.

With more people than ever in our community at risk of hunger, we have heightened our efforts to reach those in need. We have been aided by our friends, who have helped to keep our Banks’ shelves well stocked with nourishing goods.
