We are pleased to announce that the application period for the 2022 Rice Bowl Grants is now open.

These grants are open to parish food pantries and ministries in the Archdiocese of San Francisco that are dedicated to fighting hunger in our local communities. Ministries are asked to apply for funding by October 14, 2022.

Please note that only organizations within the three counties of the Archdiocese of San Francisco are eligible.

Blessed Frederic Ozanam

The funds come from the Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl program, held each year during Lent. If your parish would like to participate in the Rice Bowl program and support these grants, as well as programs around the globe, please contact us.
