COVID-19 Patient Pantry

ZSFG/UCSF Patient Pantry

Our goal is to serve low resource families throughout San Francisco by providing medical supplies, home goods, and groceries. With the help of over 20 UCSF student volunteers, neighbors and local organizations, we have been able to supply over 8 clinical sites, and over 50 patient homes with a total to date of more than 1000 deliveries! 
 

With the support of SF Wholesale Produce Market, we have been able to provide produce sourced from local growers.

You can either leave your items outside your home for one of our volunteers to pick-up or you can drop them off at our inventory address. Please email us to discuss these options at [email protected]
