Groceries for Seniors at Old St. Mary's Cathedral

About Us: Our Program

A Lean Operation


We know that every dollar spent on administrative overhead is a dollar that could purchase additional groceries. Less than 12% of our operating costs go toward salary and overhead, so that when you donate money to GFS, you can be sure that it is going toward directly toward helping hungry seniors. The San Francisco Food Bank generously donates a great deal of food to our program each week, which is supplemented by donations from local grocery stores such as Whole Foods, The Haight Street Market and Falletti's. The food sorting space where our volunteers donate their time is generously provided by Old St. Mary's Church.

GFS paid staff consists of two part-time employees: Tom Beaver is the Program Manager and Bob Panelli is the Van Driver.
