Grant Lee

We volunteer here with our kids to both help the community and for school credits. The food bank is very nicely run...clean, well organized, and the people who lead the volunteer groups have good energy and are dedicated. Thank you all for the important work that you do, and for having a well run facility.

Wonderful. I love volunteering at the SF Marin Food Bank.I started about 5 weeks. I try to go weekly. I bring my teens on the weekends. They love it as well. The staff whom I have come to know by name are great. They make our projects fun and all of them genuinely enjoy what they do. I can't say enough about the time that I give at the SF Marin Food Bank. To know I am helping to feed those in need means the world to me

Nutrition Educator

Powerful mission, staff and leaders; good place to work. Feels great to be able to impact people in need so directly and immediately; many training opportunities; good benefits, excellent 403b company match.

Warehouse Assistant

I controlled all incoming product and stocked them I helped customers take the merchandise to their cars to unload, I made sure the floor and work area stays clean at all time

Warehouse Lead

I was with the organization for 10 years, starting out as an entry-level employee and working my way up to middle management before I left. I was recruited in to a higher paying position and wish sometimes that I had stayed. Great work culture, amazing co-workers and if you put in the time and are patient you will advance. Compensation? It's a Non Profit. They pay a fair wage but if they paid market rate or higher, there would be less $$ for food or a lower quality of food. Getting paid to help feed thousands of folks in your community every day? Priceless. You should volunteer for your local food bank (without saying) but if you can afford to work there for a period of time - go for it! You can, will (and should) feel proud every time you get a paycheck.

About San Francisco - Marin Food Bank

The Food Bank plays a central role in the food assistance network in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four residents struggles to make ends meet. The food we deliver to our 450 partnering organizations, including 240 weekly grocery pantries, provides critical support to low-income families, seniors and individuals. Each week, our programs serve more than 144,000 people.

Delivering sustenance is just the beginning. We’re helping people achieve a lifetime of good health by providing nutritious foods - including an abundance of farm-fresh produce - and other vital resources such as nutrition education classes and pre-screening for food stamp benefits.

We can only accomplish all of this with the tremendous coordinated effort of year-round community support. Volunteers are at the very heart of our operations, boxing bins of produce straight from the farm, sorting food dirve donations, and packing bulk foods like rice and beans into family-sized portions. This year, more than 25,000 people volunteered their time in support of ending hunger in our community. We invite you to join us!
