Arnold McClellan Describes the San Francisco Food Bank

Affiliated with more than 450 non-profit organizations, the San Francisco Food Bank provides food to nearly a quarter-million people. Focusing on San Francisco and Marin County, this entity handles more than 45 million pounds of food every year.

Active within its community, the San Francisco Food Bank obtains food from grocery stores, growers, packagers, the United States Department of Agriculture and other groups. Trucks deliver the donations to the organization’s warehouse, where volunteers sort through the items at a rate of approximately 400 tons per week. Subsequently, the products fit for consumption are sent to pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and similar groups. Additionally, people can choose produce, canned foods, and other food items at distribution events styled after traditional farmers’ markets.
