St. Francis House VolunteersSaint Francis House (SFH) is the largest client choice food pantry in the state of Alaska, providing over 110 families with a 2-day emergency supply of food daily, and at no cost to the client.  In 2014, Saint Francis House distributed over 850,000 pounds of food to hungry Alaskans in Anchorage and the surrounding area.

What is Client Choice?  Client choice means you pick the food you take home to your family from our shelves, just like the supermarket!  When you come through our pantry with one of our volunteer personal shoppers, you have the opportunity to pick out different items from the following categories:

  • Breakfast foods
  • Pasta/rice
  • Dry proteins
  • Frozen meats
  • Fresh produce
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned or fresh fruit
  • Bread
  • Dairy
  • Sweets

Saint Francis House also distributes items for The Emergency Food Assistance Program , senior boxes for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program , vouchers for the Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program, and items for the Summer Food Service Program that serves children 18 years of age and younger.
