Food insecurity is a serious problem in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. Over 210,000 people count on the vital lifeline of SF-Marin Food Bank initiatives, including their pantry network, home-delivered groceries program, nutrition education and food stamp enrollment.
“Anyone who considers themselves in need of food qualifies for assistance from food bank programs and pantries. It is important to us that anyone who experiences food insecurity be able to access food with dignity.”
SF-Marin Food Bank believes in addressing hunger head-on. Their efforts focus on the immediate distribution of food while simultaneously working on long-term strategies to empower neighbors in need.
It’s easy to support SF-Marin Food Bank with a monthly or one-time donation.
World Harvest is dedicated to addressing hunger while combating food waste in Los Angeles County. Excess food from local restaurants, shops and farms is assembled into a familiar store experience for people in need and those concerned about waste. The 25 million pounds of WH distributes, including organic produce that is often too costly for growing families, benefits local shelters, soup kitchens and school programs—in total, over 200 partner agencies.
“In times of hardship, when your determination and forbearance are tested, it is good to know that a portion of America’s harvest is destined to relieve you in your time of need.”
But their efforts against waste don’t stop there. Produce that isn’t used in the WH “social supermarket” is shipped to feed zoo animals, saving the non-profit LA Zoo over $16,000 a month. And instead of reaching landfills, anything left over is composted to nurture more plants.
It’s easy to support World Harvest with a donation.
What is the impact of a single meal?
One single meal can mean the difference between going to bed hungry and going to bed healthy.
Here’s what you probably didn’t know:
Children, seniors, unemployed and low-wage workers make up the majority of those struggling with hunger.
It all starts with you. When you buy a vapor pen set or replacement cartridge from one of our retail partners in California, we pledge that a portion of your money is going to a good cause.
Each month, we calculate the number of items sold and make a donation to one of our nonprofit partners to cover the costs of sourcing and distributing healthy meals to individuals and families in need. One item = one meal.
We encourage our entire team to be active in the community, so we find projects we are passionate about and get involved. We ask the same of you. Please join us on a volunteer day or donate directly to your local food bank.
