SFC Sponsorship Opportunities

Our Pantry Service offers free, fresh produce and groceries weekly for extremely low-income families near the Center. Six years ago, Pantry Service guests captured the true spirit of the holidays and expressed their desire to help raise funds for the programs on which they so deeply rely. In response, SFC held its first-annual tamale cook-off, where participants competed to become the TOP TAMALE, winning tamales were chosen and distributed by the dozen during the holidays. The demand increased by over 100 dozen tamales last year! Our TOP TAMALE sponsors benefited from visibility on over 450 dozen packages of our tamales in addition to logo placement on our website, social media, and on-site at St. Francis Center.

Tamales make great gifts and are an excellent addition to any home or work celebration or holiday party!

Benefiting St. Francis Center’s Programs for Homeless & Extremely Low-Income Families & Individuals

Our 7th-Annual FRIENDS OF ST. FRANCIS CENTER event was a huge success! One hundred guests, including St. Francis Center board members, staff, volunteers and supporters, gathered at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels to enjoy delicious food, fun and the sense of community. This year we were able to almost three times as much as last year, which will be put to good use to provide fresh, nutritious groceries to extremely low-income families and help feed the homeless community in downtown Los Angeles.

Check out pictures of the event on our Facebook page here.
