The day Mayor London Breed announced City Hall employees would be working remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic was the day Cody Jang, head community engagement manager at the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, knew his job was about to change.
Three thousand volunteers cancelled their shifts in a single day. Even the volunteers they could get to sign up needed to work in smaller groups. And tech companies, previously a consistent source of large groups of volunteers, were nowhere to be found.
Nobody wanted to be liable for sending in their employees to volunteer, Jang explained.
Before the pandemic, the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank would plan volunteer shifts three-to-five months in advance. Food packing shifts ran at the nonprofits two main warehouses seven days a week, with between 30 and 80 volunteers coming in per shift. Each day there would be between two and four shifts. They provided groceries for approximately 34,000 families per week.
Today, there are only seven to 10 people volunteering for each warehouse shift. And yet, because of increased need, Jang says they need to serve 16,000 extra families, totaling more than 50,000 families per week.

A Catalyst Year By The Numbers
This pandemic exposed what we already knew hunger does not affect us all equally. Systemic inequities ensured the fault lines of our economy only widened. In our latest Hunger Report, we share our latest survey results where more than half of respondents have lost work due to the pandemic and half of them turned to us for the first time. The majority of respondents also have yet to recover, which is an ongoing trend as there is no vaccine for hunger. Read our latest Hunger Report for more details.
