Funding from Give2SF addresses issues of food security, access to housing, and economic support for workers, families, and small businesses. Contributions from individuals and foundations focus on assisting low-income people, immigrants, older adults, and people with disabilities.

Food Support

HSA is working with Give2SF and trusted community partner organizations to distribute essential resources to fight hunger in San Francisco. This work is ongoing and new community partners will be added as funding become available.

Vulnerable single adults and families

  • Safeway gift cards: A total of 2,650 undocumented individuals and families who have very low income will receive $200 Safeway gift cards. HSA is partnering with the San Francisco Health Network’s Healthy San Francisco program, a trusted provider of health care services to undocumented residents, to distribute the gift cards. By mid-May, eligible program participants will receive gift cards in the mail and do not need to take any action or apply. This program is available to existing Healthy San Francisco recipients.
  • Family resource centers: Low-income families served by community-based family resource centers in high need areas will receive grocery gift cards during the month of May. Priority will be given to pregnant mothers and parents with children under age 3; details on the distribution method will be finalized and updated here.
  • Community organizations serving immigrants: Chinese for Affirmative Action will distribute grocery gift cards to undocumented and low-income Chinese and Asian Pacific Islander communities through peer to peer outreach and partnerships with citywide immigration collaboratives.
