How to buy and donate food and fuel in San Francisco


If you’re looking to donate food, fuel or supplies to the homeless in San Fran, the city has a good chance of you being able to do so, according to a new study. 

A new report by the city of San Francisco says that between May 1 and October 31, more than 4,300 volunteers were helping with food distribution in San Franciscans homes. 

Volunteers can donate food or fuel directly to households, and the city can provide free fuel and electricity to households if they request it. 

“There are over 6 million people living in shelters, emergency shelters, and transitional housing in San Jose and San Francisco alone, so this is really a national trend,” the report said. 

The city’s homeless population is now larger than it was in 2016, when the number was over 3,000. 

For the past three years, San Francisco has seen a significant uptick in the number of homeless people living on the streets. 

Last year, the number fell to 2,845, with 2,000 more living in transitional housing. 

According to the city, San Francis homeless population grew from 5,000 to 7,800 people.
