Cinco de Mayo

The Mission Food Hub will be celebrating it's fourth year of programming with a Cinco de Mayo Celebration to raise funds to stay open another year. The event will take place Sunday, May 5, 2024 at 10 am on Folsom Street between 23rd and 25th Streets.

Money raised will benefit CANA-Mission Food Hub. The Food Hub was created by the community to help meet the needs of Latino families during the pandemic. At the height of the pandemic, the Mission Food Hub served 9,000 families facing food insecurity each week. Unfortunately, funding in food insecurity has drastically decreased and we are raising funds to keep us operational for another year.

Individuals interested in donating are asked to make contributions in denominations of “five” — $5, $50, $500, $5,000 — in keeping with the Cinco de Mayo theme. “The event will help us raise funds so we can keep providing groceries to our community. Since the start of the pandemic, the number of people suffering from food insecurity has increased.” said Roberto Hernandez, Founder of the Mission Food Hub.

Donations can also be made online (

Urban Farming

Food prices continue to rise! Food needs for families is at an all time high. Have you bought eggs lately?

Funding for food has drastically decreased at the Mission Food Hub. We have been working at long term solutions to grow our own food in San Francisco in partnership with our Native American brothers and sisters.

About Our Organization

Feeding Our Community

The Mission Food Hub was founded in May 2020 to provide culturally appropriate groceries for families who were affected by COVID-19. In San Francisco, food inequity is currently impacting over 12,000 Latinos who are unemployed and the Mission District is Ground ZERO for the coronavirus. We started providing 500 families with one grocery bag a week. The lines of people rapidly grew to 1,800 within a couple of weeks. We are now providing culturally appropriate groceries three times a week to 9,000 families!

Our Mission & Core Values

We collectively serve our community by procuring and distributing culturally-appropriate and nutritious food to ensure the well-being of families and individuals. We are motivated by love, respect, and a desire to provide dignity to our Latino people who are experiencing hunger and are in need of food.

Social Justice

We commit to addressing the root causes of food inequity in the Latino community and advocate for social justice change to ensure the availability of safe, sufficient, and nutritious food. We believe good nutrition is a human right and that empowered people and communities thrive.


We honor the inherent worth and dignity of every person and treat all with equity and love.


We build strong relationships and partnerships by collaborating with diverse people, organizations, churches, government agencies, and neighborhoods who share our vision of a healthy, hunger-free Latino community. Our collaborations will address the root causes of hunger, promote entrepreneurial creativity, and maintain optimism to develop opportunities for permanent employment, self-employment and business development for Latino people.
