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 calendar to see the 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.

GLIDE relies on 60 volunteers each day to help keep the meals programming running. View opportunities and sign up to serve a meal.
