What’s it all about?
St. John’s Presbyterian Church is a member of the Neighborhood Grocery Network of the San Francisco Food Bank. They distribute supplemental groceries to approximately 200 families and individuals every Saturday of the year.

Clients are asked to provide their name, proof of address (drivers license, utility bill, etc.), and signature.
