San Francisco food pantries struggle to meet growing need

Tuesday mornings can get pretty crowded at Minnie and Lovie Ward Park in San Francisco’s Oceanview district. Up to 300 people of all ages stand or sit in front of the large recreation center, carrying shopping bags, baskets or rolling bags with wheels. They are here to pick up free produce and groceries. 

This food pantry is run by the OMI Family Resource Center. It serves the OMI: Oceanview, Merced Heights, and Ingleside neighborhoods in the southwest section of San Francisco. To receive food, people have to show proof of residency in the 94112, 94116, or 94132 zipcodes.
