St. Anthony's Padua Dining Room
Serves hundreds of hot meals six days a week to people in
need who walk through the doors. Funded entirely by voluntary
contributions, St. Anthony's is the largest dining room for the needy
between San Francisco and San Jose. It also offers emergency food
and clothing assistance.

The largest collector and distributor of food on the Peninsula,
Second Harvest Food Bank distributed 52 million pounds of food

distributes food to more than 250,000 people each month through
more than 770 agencies and distribution sites in San Mateo and
Santa Clara counties.
