In response to the alarming escalation in xenophobia and bigotry resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University launched the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center on March 19, 2020. The center tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.

Support Chinatown

 

Feed + Fuel Chinatown: Chinatown CDC, in partnership with Self-Help for the Elderly and SF New Deal, distributed 122,000 meals to 1000+ SRO and public housing residents over a 2 ½ month period at the onset of COVID shelter in place. Feed + Fuel Chinatown 1.0 utilized 34 Chinatown restaurants. The program distributed meals via delivery and issuance of vouchers for takeout at the relevant restaurant and received strong positive feedback from restaurants and meal recipients.

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.

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.

  • Ensure availability of protective safety materials for workers and volunteers.
