ORGANIZATION: St. Francis Living Room

St. Francis Living Room
Good morning, from the SFLR!

Come volunteer at the St. Francis Living Room and serve needy seniors a healthy breakfast! (And a bag lunch, too!) At the St. Francis Living Room, we serve 17,500+ nutritious breakfasts (plus bag lunches) annually to low income and homeless seniors on weekdays. We treat our clients (and volunteers!) with dignity, kindness and respect. Volunteers help serve meals and assist those seniors needing extra assistance. While ongoing volunteers are preferable, one time helpers are also welcome. We are open weekday mornings and volunteer shifts typically start at 8:15 a.m. and go until 10:30 a.m. We are located near Civic Center, easily accessible via Muni or BART.

Some duties for volunteers include: welcoming our guests, preparing and serving meals, assisting with clean up. Currently all food is served to-go. We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen facilities, after which we will reopen for seated dining service and other activities such as bingo, movies, Tai Chi and more,

Come spend a morning or two with us and feel how rewarding it can be to help others.
