At US Capital Partners, we believe in the importance of being an active member of the community. That’s why we support charitable organizations around the world and at home.
We are proud to provide monthly assistance to the San Francisco Food Bank, an organization that has been fighting hunger in San Francisco and Marin for the past 25 years. Recently, the struggles people have faced as a result of the recession and slow recovery have necessitated herculean efforts from organizations focused on providing food to the hungry.
Despite the difficulties, people have responded with an outpouring of support. Thanks to the efforts of thousands of community donors, volunteers, and employees, the Food Bank has distributed an impressive amount of food to those in need. In 2011, for instance, the SF Food Bank served 225,000 people and distributed an average of 100,000 meals a day.
The need for food, however, has not subsided. The SF Food Bank estimates that one in four people in the Marin and San Francisco area is underfed, while the number of people who are at risk of being underfed has doubled since 2008. Donations are needed now more than ever, and US Capital Partners plans to continue its commitment to feeding the hungry in San Francisco, Marin, and abroad.
