Support our family-run restaurants by ordering takeout and delivery.
Keep them open during this time of emergency and they will stay open for you until we get through this together.
As with the ever-changing nature of this epidemic, hours of operation may change but volunteers will keep updating this as much as possible.

This form is for those who are interested in volunteering for Chinatown CDC food programs during COVID-19. Chinatown CDC is focused on keeping residents SAFE and fed. In particular, we aim to minimize communal kitchen usage in Chinatown SRO buildings.
**When volunteering with us you will be given PPE such as mask and gloves**
During this difficult time with the COVID-19, the underprivileged community needs our help more than ever before. We are looking for volunteers to help with food pantries for four organizations that serve communities in or nearby Chinatown. The responsibilities include:
Unload and move food
Pack food into grocery bags for all participants
Hand participants grocery bags
Clean up the distribution area
We understand that the City of San Francisco has ordered "shelter-in-place", however, the food pantry service is an exception. This service is essential and many families are relying on the food pantry to get their daily food. We are monitoring the situation and will follow the guidance from the city if anything changes.
With this unprecedented emergency we are experiencing, API Council has set up an Emergency Fund where we welcome donations, grants and gifts. Our goal is to raise $500,000 by April 30.
Help ensure food security and safety for our low-income API families and seniors.
Ensure availability of protective safety materials for workers and volunteers.
STOP AAPI HATE
We encourage individuals who have experienced hate as a result of COVID-19 to continue to report at www.a3pcon.org/stopaapihate.
The incident report form is now available in Vietnamese and Khmer, Vietnamese and Hindi as well as English, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai, with Tagalog and a few additional South Asian languages coming soon.
The reporting center was founded by the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) and San Francisco State University’s Asian American Studies Department.
