Food Offering for Homeless People

The lunch program at City Center for homeless people will begin again in January of 2012.

To determine if there is sufficient volunteer interest to maintain it, we will begin with a twice monthly offering. The dates will be Thursdays, January 12 and 26 and February 9 and 23, from 1-3:30pm.

If you are interested in helping on any of these dates or wish to help in the future, please contact the Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, Jeffrey Schneider at either 415.354.0379 or at
