  • Food Recovery Pickups: We need one volunteer every Thursday at 6:30pm to collect donated food from the CUESA Mission Community Market and drop off at our kitchen. This is perfect for folks who love connecting with Farmers Market vendors and want to support food rescue.
  • Family Food Distribution: Volunteer one day per week between Mon-Fri at 4:30pm to greet families picking up dinners at our kitchen. By fall, these guests will join us for seated Family Dinners at Refettorio SF. This is a fun opportunity to start building relationships with our family guests.
