In response to reports of turkey shortages at Bay Area food banks, a San Francisco company helped to deliver 100 turkeys to St. Anthony’s in San Francisco.

Shorenstein Co., a privately held real estate investment and management firm, arranged for a Safeway food truck to drop off the turkeys Saturday.

“It’s always remarkable, especially during the holidays, to see the outpouring of generosity when there is a real need in the community,” said Karl Robillard, a spokesman for St. Anthony’s.

Bay Area food banks and nonprofits are reporting fewer donations this year and strong demand for food. Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties also reported last week that it is far short of its goal of collecting 12,000 turkeys.Bay Area NewsTurkey
