Our DAILY FREE MEALS PROGRAM fills your body and soul with a nourishing meal in an atmosphere of respect, acceptance and love.
GLIDE's program is the only one in San Francisco to provide 3 nutritious meals a day, 364 days a year to the city's poor, homeless and hungry.
We began serving meals in 1969 as a volunteer-run potluck for 50, and now serve on average 2,560 meals a day with the help of 30 kitchen and security staff and thousands of volunteers each year.
Breakfast: 8am - 9am
Lunch: Noon - 1:30pm
Dinner: 4pm - 5:30pm (Monday - Friday) and bagged lunches served Noon - 1:30pm (Saturday & Sunday)
The dining hall is reserved for seniors each morning from 7:30am - 8am.
GLIDE invites the community to special meal services during the Holidays, including Thanksgiving and Christmas. View our current Holiday Meals Schedule.
We welcome participants of GLIDE's Women's Center drop-in support group, Women on the Move to breakfast between 10:30 am - 11am daily.
