City Hope Programming Update
We are all receiving a lot of information about the COVID-19 virus and its related effects on SF and the greater Bay Area. As our valued partners, we want you to know that City Hope is staying abreast of all communications from Mayor London Breed, the City of San Francisco’s Department of Public Health, and the CDC. While these are chaotic times, City Hope is firmly committed to being a stable, peaceful presence in the Tenderloin, serving our most vulnerable neighbors.
As you may have seen on our social media channels, our scheduled programming looks and feels very different these days, but we continue to serve! To prevent further spread of the virus and protect our neighbors, City Hope has carefully implemented the city's safety guidelines and we are keeping close watch as things evolve. The number of people needing meals continues to grow and City Hope is now serving almost 550 ready-to-go meals per week to our most vulnerable neighbors.
For those who find themselves with increased flexibility, there is now a unique opportunity to help us cook and prep these to-go meals in the City Hope kitchen. Unfortunately, the packaging necessary for to-go meals and the additional sanitizing supplies, gloves and masks all mean added program costs. If you’d like to help us mitigate these expenses, please donate!
In response to growing needs in the community City Hope has also doubled our weekly delivery of groceries, serving over 140 disabled elderly persons through our partnership with the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. There is a greater need for canned goods and related food items, meaning a need for even more volunteers to help deliver groceries on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 am-11 am. If you are able-bodied and willing to help us meet this need, please sign up.
