  Mission Cliffs Food Drive: Make A Difference
This winter Mission Cliffs is helping to make a difference in the lives of San Francisco low-income families, seniors and individuals threatened by hunger by holding a food drive with the San Francisco Food Bank.

At the entrance to Mission Cliffs are boxes to collect food. The most needed items are: rice and pasta, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, canned meats, soups, stews, chili, peanut butter, cereal and other similar items. Please do not leave glass containers.



Some interesting facts about hunger in the San Francisco area:

One in four children, one and four seniors and one in five adults are at risk of going hungry. The two largest age groups threatened are children and senior citizens.

The majority of people receiving supplemental food assistance in San Francisco have at least one employed household member, but their incomes are not enough to pay expenses and buy food.

The San Francisco Food Bank will distribute food to over 34,000 households this holiday season.

The San Francisco Food Bank distributes more than 41.5 million pounds of food every year to low-income families, individuals and more than 400 local nonprofit agencies.

Help support the hungry in San Francisco- stop by Mission Cliffs and make a donation.
