A few weeks ago 15 Atlassians spent a half day volunteering at the San Francisco Food Bank to help with the holiday season. It was a great success with over 17,000 pounds of food boxed up for needy San Franciscan seniors, all in less than 4 hours.
The food bank has 90 employees with a 5.9 million dollar annual budget, where they process over 32 million pounds in donated and purchased food.
The food is then delivered to over 600 community food programs. This includes 191 neighborhood pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, homeless shelters and youth programs totalling over 70,000 people per year.
