As one of San Mateo’s leading nonprofits, we are the largest food distribution agency in the county and are recognized as a role model in the community. Our free service offerings include shelter and housing assistance; medical and dental clinics; clothes for children; personalized case management and much more. Each year, we provide services and resources to more than 14,000 low-income and homeless San Mateo County residents in need, including families with children, seniors and individuals living with a disability, veterans and homeless adults.

This July, Samaritan House is opening its new community marketplace, Cora's Community Market. We are seeking volunteers to help clients shop for groceries, as well as increased support with our food drive-through line next door. If you are interested in helping as a volunteer once weekly, please reach out to learn more. Right now help is most needed Monday through Friday between either 9am to 12pm or 1pm-4pm.
