The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank will be open Tuesday morning at Cesar Chavez Elementary School and on Thursday at Mission High School, according to the food bank.

With more than 100 of its 275 food pantries closing in recent weeks, the food bank has expanded to some of the schools where the San Francisco Unified School District is distributing free meals daily. No ID or sign-up is required. Show up and walk away with 25 to 30 pounds of staples, fresh produce, and milk.

  • Monday: Bayview Opera House
  • Tuesday: Cesar Chavez Elementary
  • Wednesday: James Denman Middle School
  • Wednesday: Rosa Parks Elementary
  • Thursday: Francisco Middle School

 The food bank warned that the schedule is subject to change and to check its find food page for the most up-to-date pantry information.  We will be updating this page as they add more schools.
