KGO reports that food banks across the Bay Area are struggling to meet the growing demand for donations. San Francisco Food Bank's demand has risen a disheartening 32% in the past year, and other Bay Area food banks have experienced similar numbers. Here are some ways to help.

Donate money online, drop off your donations at these locations, or organize a food drive. Need some assistance from the food bank? Volunteer and get food in exchange.

Here is a list of upcoming events benefiting the San Francisco Food Bank:

12/11: Goaldiggers Food Drive at Truck Bar
Donate a standard grocery bag full of food and get all the beer you can drink from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Through 12/11: Safeway Bag Hunger Campaign
Purchase a pre-packaged bag to donate.
