Home Who We Are Our Community

Our Community


We are making a difference by:

Empowering youth,

strengthening community,

and creating resilience.


At Bi-Rite, we are optimistic and intentional builders.

We prioritize support for organizations and programs at the intersection of FOOD, YOUTH and EDUCATION, with a lens towards historically-underserved populations. Our work is rooted in meaningful, local relationships. We provide our time, food, financial support, expertise and passion, and we are committed to actively listening to and collaborating with our community partners to adapt to their needs. Our work is intended to help create a healthier, more equitable, and thriving future for our community.


We believe it takes a village to make a community thrive. To that end, we are proud to support organizations that are working to strengthen our San Francisco community. To request a gift card, product or financial donation from the Bi-Rite Family of Businesses, please complete our online request form. Due to the volume of requests received, we ask that donation requests are made at least 4-6 weeks in advance of the date the donation is desired.

In order for your request to be considered, please note:

  1. All donation requests require a Tax ID number.
  2. We are not able to accept emailed or faxed donation request forms. We are also unable to process requests submitted via postal mail.
  3. We are not able to mail or deliver donated items. All items must be arranged in advance for pick-up at our 18th Street or Divisadero Markets.
  4. In order to provide meaningful support to the many wonderful organizations within our community, donations are limited to 1 per organization per 12-month period.

Our typical procedure is to communicate within 3 weeks of you completing the form; and if you haven’t heard from us within 3 weeks, you can always email us at community@biritemarket.com. Once we have reviewed your request, you will receive an email confirming or declining the request. If we’re able to accommodate your request, additional details will be included in your confirmation email.


Our Community office is located at 3505 20th Street (at Mission).
