If you ever give up believing that there are no kind, generous, people, this place will change it in a heart beat. You go as an angel and you leave feeling like a saint. I think everyone should spen...d at least a day in this place to get their priorities right, understand how fortunate they are and experience empathy in a higher dosage See More

St Anthony Foundation has a depth of years of refined experience in helping people with all types of challenges. My platinum case manager was Celeste Quintero at their SW Center. I am often using thei...r Tech Lab to print out leaflets (they have super expensive printer that prints very well), modifying WordPress, while uploading my videos on my cell using their Wifi and watching Tutorial videos all over online. The amazing staff here provide Trauma Informed Care and use Trauma Informed Language. Give generously, if you are a philanthropist. See More

St. Anthony is one of those places I have a lot of respect for. Their food is is for the very most part enjoyable. As long as everyone is on their best behavior, no one is turned away before the doors... close after the last person in line. The staff and volunteers treat folks very well. It's always baffled me that SAF doesn't usually get featured on the news around the holidays, when they are far better than the one place that does. See More

How can anyone criticize what StAnthonys does. The clintelle they serve is a challenge. Some of the clientelle are ungrateful and mean yet they still get served a meal and a smile . I find myself ther...e about five times a year if I walk by and the line is small and I say "Why not" It helps stretch a budget. I do have issues with cigarette smokers and their crappy manners and this keeps me away from Glide more than StAnthonys . The number of citizens in the city needing the food assistance is surprisingly huge considering the wealth in the city. The high rents and addictions being the number one reason. Some citizens never miss a meal at StAnthonys because all their money goes to rent and they would dwindle without the help. See More

Just think - if there were justice, where would 'the church' be - People'd have enough stuff - housing, health care, art, science, and all. So what would the church have to do - ? keep contact with g...od for people ? seriously? If people still wanted to plead for mercy from the sky cloud, couldn't they do it themselves? See More

St. Anthony Foundation is MUCH more than a place that feeds the homeless...They feed the soul...they give dignity and humanity to the broken spirit....Anyone who reads this please believe me...if you ...ever have a chance to volunteer in the Dining will see the very essence of "Love one another as I have loved you".......Every single day of the Year!!!!! The reason I know this is because St Anthony Foundation reached out to me in darkest of times in my life...and now I am whole again.....They fed my stomach and my spirit at the same time!!!!!! THE FACE OF GOD is in St. Anthony's Dining Room EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!!! See More

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of he...roism. (Max Ehrmann, Desiderata)
St. Anthony Foundation is one of my heroes. I feel fortunate that I have enough to eat, a roof over my head and the best dog in the universe. So, when I feel the need to donate to an organization that I actually know something about, I donate to the St. Anthony Foundation(among others). I love St. Anthony's Dining Room and in these hard economic times, I want to make sure it continues to exist.

Way back when I worked for a probate attorney, I would always look at our clients' wills/trusts and wondered what was this St. Anthony Foundation that was always getting listed in people's wills to re...ceive large sums of money. I looked it up because I was curious as to why so many would rather give their money to this organization than to their own families after they died. Since then, St. Anthony has been at the back of my mind, and every once in a blue moon, we would make a coat/sock donation to this charity if we remembered.

When my 7th grader told me he needed to put in 2 hours of volunteer work per month for school, I thought first of St. Anthony's Dining Room.

One thing that impressed me was the reason you are made to attend a lengthy orientation before you are allowed to volunteer. Most places don't do make you do this, like SF Food Bank, etc. I found out the reason was that St. Anthony wants to make sure their patrons are treated with respect. They told us that as volunteers, we represent St. Anthony, so they wanted to train us in how to respect these individuals who are usually shunned and looked down upon by others in the community. Just as important as feeding hungry individuals was giving them a feeling of acceptance - that is the reason the dining room environment is so important - instead of just being handed a bag of food to go eat elsewhere, the patrons have an opportunity to eat with friends in a group setting - that instead of being excluded and isolated, they can have a sense of belonging.

We signed up to help in the dining room once a month. At first, I felt pretty apprehensive walking around the Tenderloin with my young son and wondered if this was a good idea. The crowd inside was all so streetwise too, and there was usually at least one arrest or fight or situation each time we volunteered. But the staff is pretty tough and fearless and keep things under control, and when my son has worked at the front entrance, he has always been carefully supervised by an adult.

So yesterday was our 3rd time, and I felt compelled to write something about how it's going so far. The staff - so down-to-earth, so real, always building up my son and making him feel important - I'm happy to call them our friends. The other volunteers - love to chat, come from such different backgrounds, all having so many different reasons for volunteering. The patrons - some have interacted with me (under close scrutiny by security, I notice, which is good) to say thank you, or to make a joke, or to give me a hard time in a nice way (i.e., "Hey! Are you Bruce Lee's sister?") - all positive though.

The philosophy is this: everyone who comes gets to eat, and they can get more if they are still hungry, and they can even bring food home to make sure they have something to eat for dinner later.

I'm thinking that even after my son's 7th grade year ends, we might continue our monthly commitment. It is one thing to be donating money or clothes from the comfort of our own world, but it is quite another to see for real those who are having trouble just getting something to eat each day, in addition to the other unseen difficulties they are facing. These people are just like everyone else - with my bills and financial commitments, it is not hard to fathom me being in their shoes if misfortune spiraled out of control sometime down the line.

St. Anthony is such an important organization to so many people for so many reasons - in addition to the dining room, they also have computer classes, a medical clinic, and a free clothing program. I consider us blessed to be able to give our time to such a worthwhile community service. St. Anthony, thank you for what you do, and keep it going.
