Samaritan House is a private nonprofit organization that provides services to   help meet the essential daily needs of more than 12,000 low-income people within San Mateo County.

Each holiday season the Samaritan House distributes tens of thousands of pounds of non-perishable food to its clients in addition to the meals they serve in their kitchens. During this time, they are in special need of food donations - including turkeys, chicken, and ham - from our community.
