The St. Anthony’s Foundation is celebrating 60 years of feeding, healing, sheltering and clothing San Franciscans in need. Their supplemental pantry is unique in that it is set up like grocery store and eligible residents of the Tenderloin and South of Market can pick items directly from the shelves versus getting a pre-packed bag of food. Those eligible include families with at least 1 child under 18 living with them; individuals with a nutritionally related illness (diabetes, cancer, HIV, AIDS, etc.) pregnant women, and seniors 60+. If eligible, clients are able to shop 6 times a year. Learn more about the St. Anthony’s Foundation at: www.stanthonysf.org
