What started as a way to put unused food from local hotels, convention centers and stadiums into the hands of the hungry has turned into one of the Bay Area’s biggest Covd Relief organizations. Hunger at Home takes food from local hospitality organizations that would otherwise go to waste, and instead turns it to meals for local families in need of a little help.
Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the organization has mobilized itself into full crisis response, serving over 2.6 million meals since March 2020, with expectations to hit 3 million by year’s end.
Hunger at home provides full, nutritious meals to families each day, with teams of volunteers staffing prep kitchens and distribution centers around the Bay Area.
As California works to curb the rising number of cases, unemployment soars, and thousands are left without a way to pay rent or put food on the table. People wait in their cars for hours as the Hunger at Home volunteers work to get through a line over 700 cars long, with some cars representing more than one family.
In response to this dire need, Sandis took decided to pivot our yearly client gift baskets or bottles of wine into a donation to Hunger at Home. Sandis’ donation gave our neighbors over a thousand meals this holiday season.
