Sen. Feinstein helps St. Anthony's mark milestone
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A San Francisco charity that feeds the poor celebrated a bittersweet milestone Friday.
St. Anthony's dining room served its 40 millionth meal and Sen. Dianne Feinstein was there to serve the landmark lunch to a family.
St. Anthony's has been providing food and health care to low-income people since the 1950s. "We've been in the Tenderloin for over 60 years and the need is definitely not going away. It's getting stronger. We're serving more meals today than we ever have," said Suzanne Swift with the St. Anthony's Foundation.
Feinstein was also at St. Anthony's in 1979 to serve the 13 millionth meal. She was San Francisco's mayor back then.
St. Anthony's is building a new dining room that will allow it to feed 30 percent more people at the new location. It's expected to open in October.
