Welcome to ICNA Relief Bay Area


Food Pantry

Since 2007, the local chapter of ICNA has been in the forefront of serving the most-needy across the Bay Area with nourishing hot meals. The food is cooked fresh in the morning, carefully packed in single serving boxes, and delivered in a truck – equipped with food warmers, to places where the homeless people gather. Once there, it serves as a brick-and-mortar soup kitchen, serving the people with a smile. We call it MERCY ON WHEELS.
