South Palo Alto Food Closet
We provide groceries to individuals and families in need in the Palo Alto area.
You shouldn't have to choose between rent and food!
Who We Are
The South Palo Alto Food Closet was started in the late 1970's by a group of local churches when they saw that so many people in Palo Alto who were having a hard time making the money stretch through the entire month.
We are a partner agency with
Second Harvest Food Bank.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
“Everything that is done in the world is done by hope”
