Over the years, the Southeast Asian Community Center has been helped by numerous volunteers. Currently, we have a group of dedicated volunteers who manage our Immigrant Free Food Distribution Program on a weekly basis. Each Friday morning, several volunteers arrive before 6AM to receive deliveries from the San Francisco Food Bank and stock them in a storage room. Later that morning, the volunteers manage the distribution of food donations to 250 immigrant households who are either referred by the City of San Francisco’s Department of Social Services or are met requirements of immigrant low-income household. This volunteer group has now been together for more than 15 years and has become a vital and important member of the Southeast Asian Community Center’s family.
