The Richmond District Food Security Network (RDFSN)

RDFSN is an extension of our SF-Marin Food Bank supported pantry. The RDFSN is a collaboration between the Richmond Senior Center and RDNC. We match local volunteers with senior participants who are homebound or have mobility issues that make it difficult to attend the food pantry. Volunteers deliver fresh groceries, share in friendly conversation, and serve as an additional ally and set of eyes in the community looking out for those in need.

Time: Thursdays from 2:30PM-6:30PM

Location: pick up – 741 30th Ave; delivery to Richmond District Residents
