The Season for Sharing: Support Our Local Food Banks

During the holiday season, Zen Center will be hosting a food drive in collaboration with the San Francisco Food Bank.

A large barrel in the City Center lobby is available to receive your donations of nonperishable food items. Donations of food will be accepted through December.

Alternatively, you can make financial donations online to the Food Drive through San Francisco Zen Center’s campaign page. This page also explains where donations go and why the food drive is so important.

Thank you for helping us support those in need.
