Mission Statement

St. Anthony's is an organization providing essential support to San Franciscans living in poverty. Our mission is to feed, heal, shelter, clothe, lift the spirits of those in need, and create a society in which all persons flourish. Every day, with dignity and respect, we offer those who need it the basics we all need to feel human: a hot meal, fresh clothing, an opportunity to connect with the world around us.


St. Anthony Foundation:

  • Over 70 years in San Francisco
  • 45 million meals served
  • Never-ending hope

St. Anthony’s is a civic anchor in San Francisco, providing stability to low-income residents of the city and inspiring hope through 2,700 hot meals a day, fresh clothing, medical care, technology access, job training, addiction recovery, and poverty education.

St. Anthony’s is a safe, welcoming place for individuals, community groups, and corporate teams to volunteer in a way that has a profound impact and is deeply rewarding for participants. Whether serving meals in our dining room, helping guests find fresh clothing, or teaching basic computer skills classes - volunteers are an integral part of the services we provide for those in need. Nearly 17,000 volunteers come through our doors each year.

We wouldn’t be here today without generations of San Franciscans who have given us a vision for a better world. Join us and together make a positive change.

I volunteered at the dining room once to help serve meals. It was a wonderful experience with amazing people. I left feeling that I had made a (little) positive impact in the world.
