Bi-Rite’s mission is Creating Community Through Food, and our community mission is Empowering Youth, Strengthening Community, and Creating Resilience. Each year we donate to hundreds of local, San Francisco organizations and prioritize support for organizations and programs at the intersection of Food, Youth, and Education, with a lens towards historically underserved populations.

In addition to gift cards, catering and product, we are proud to also be able to offer a 10% nonprofit catering discount for qualifying 501(c)3 organizations.

Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we ask that donation requests are made at least 5 weeks in advance of the date the donation is needed.

Our typical process is to communicate with you within 3 weeks of receiving your online request; if you haven’t heard from us within 3 weeks, you can always email us at

In order for your donation request to be considered, please note:
