FAQs

How do I enroll?

EatSF does not directly enroll families and/or individuals. Enrollment in the EatSF program is through participating partner organizations such as supportive housing agencies, senior centers, health clinics, SRO buildings, and many others. You must also meet the eligibility criteria to be a part of the program. Contact a partner organization that you are affiliated with to see if you are eligible to participate.

If you are an organization that would like to partner with EatSF, please contact us at eatsf@ucsf.edu or 415-206-4947.

Where do I get my vouchers?

Vouchers are distributed via community-based organizations partnering with EatSF. If you are a current participant, you will receive vouchers from the staff at your site on a monthly basis. Please contact the staff at your site for more information, or use the “Contact” option at the bottom of this page to contact the EatSF Program Coordinator.

How much are my vouchers worth?

Each voucher is worth $5. Participants receive $20-$40 each month in vouchers, depending on their household size.

How often will I get vouchers?

This depends on the staff at the site where you are receiving vouchers. Most people receive their vouchers once per month.

Can I use more than one voucher at a time?

Yes, as long as you are using the vouchers within the “First day to use” and “Last day to use” dates written on them.

If I lose my vouchers or they expire, can I get new ones?

Once you have received vouchers from your site, you are responsible for using them within the valid dates. You cannot get new ones if they are lost or expired.

Where can I use my vouchers?

Please check the map to find the markets, grocery stores, and corner stores that accept EatSF vouchers. You may also use the vouchers at the Heart of the City Farmers Market.

How do I use my voucher at the Farmers Market?

Exchange your voucher for red tokens at the information booth. Those red tokens can then be used to buy fruits and vegetables at the market.

How do I use my voucher at corner stores and grocery stores?

Use your voucher just like you would use cash. Get your fruits and vegetables and then when you are ready to pay, give the cashier your EatSF voucher. No matter how much you spend, you won’t get any change back from the voucher. So try and spend as close to the $5 maximum as you can!

I went to one of the stores and they wouldn’t take my voucher. What do I do?

If you have a problem using your voucher, please contact EatSF or call 415-206-4947.
