San Francisco Zen Center, in cooperation with the San Francisco Interfaith Council and the Gubbio Project, offers meals (breakfast and dinner) on a semi-regular basis to homeless men and women. We are compiling a list of volunteers who are interested in being invited to help with these meals.

Amidst the political and social challenges of our times, when public expressions of racism, bigotry, anti-semitism, and hatred and violence are rising, I wanted to make very clear that San Francisco Zen Center, in our commitment to the practice of waking up and living in wisdom and compassion, strives to be a place of tolerance, openness, and welcoming, and a community of peaceful spiritual sanctuary.
