Distanced. Not Disconnected! Food Bank Assistant (Heritage Homes - SF)

Many families are just one "bad month" away from becoming food insecure, according to Feeding America. An emergency expense, like a car repair or medical bill, or a job loss can put a family in the tough position of choosing between groceries and paying for other essential needs. Food security has been the #1 pressing need for families during the pandemic.

We need just 60 minutes of your time a month to connect with staff, link neighbors with critical resources, and help families through the challenges of the pandemic.

Distributions are held Mondays to help those in need access healthy food.

Volunteers are needed between 10:30pm - 12:30pm.

We’d love it if you’d join us and roll up your sleeves to organize and help with set up, organizing, distributing, and enforcing social distancing guidelines.


We will practice safe social distance protocols, and we ask that all volunteers wear sturdy tennis shoes or boots and bring a mask and gloves.
