Canyon Market Community Giving

Giving back to our community is very important to us as a neighborhood grocer. There are countless organizations deserving of support, and we feel we can make the biggest impact when we focus our contributions to a couple themes. We primarily support schools and non-profit (501 c3) arts organizations within San Francisco. 

One way we do this is through our Scrip program, whereby 10% of each gift card sold is donated to your child's school. For more information about this program, please email Janet Tarlov

Another way we frequently donate is in the form of gift cards for auctions and raffles. Actual food is harder (ironically!) because it requires staff schedules being altered and extra labor to get the order together. Also, we rarely have leftover food to donate. We are a long time partner with Food Runners, who picks up our bread, though. Catering platters or items off our catering menu are not eligible for discounts or donations. However, items from our prepared foods section are sometimes possible when it is ordered in bulk and the organization platters the food. Please note that all donations must be picked up at the store. 

For consideration of a donation, please fill out our donation request form and submit it in person or via email at least five weeks in advance of the date the donation is needed. 

Canyon Market’s Register Round-Up

As a neighborhood grocer, we strive to build community in as many ways as we can. Our register round-up program is one way we seek to raise each other up. Customers can choose to round-up their purchase to the nearest dollar. That change, or any amount chosen, will be donated to the featured community non-profit. It’s the little extra from each of us than can add up to a lot together.

The program began in September 2017. With the encouragement of our customers, we began accepting donations through our registers to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The first register round-up recipient was the San Antonio Food Bank. Ever since, each month highlights another worthy organization.

For consideration to be a round-up recipient or make a suggestion, please email Janet Tarlov. We review requests on a monthly basis and do our best to respond to every request. 

Below are previous recipients of the register round-up program:

- The Food Pantry at St. Gregory of Nyssa, Potrero Hill
- Arriba Juntos
- Rise Up Sonoma
- Community Grows
- Larkin Street Youth Services
- Mission Neighborhood Health Center
- San Antonio Food Bank
