YOUR PROGRAM CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Excess food or products from your convention or meeting can be transferred to Bay Area Organizations via the Network for the Needy, a service of the Professional Convention Management Association. The agencies listed below can collect donated goods from the hotels or convention center and distribute them to San Francisco agencies including AIDS service providers, senior centers, homeless shelters, after school programs, and many others.

For convention groups meeting at Moscone Convention Center, the convention center maintains an excellent excess goods program.  Please contact your event manager for further information. Make a difference!
