Glide Church Operates Daily Meals Program For the Needy


As owner of California-based companies Residential Foreclosure Wholesale, LLC, and East Bay Holding Company Co., LP, Danny Olmstead works to renovate duplexes and develop new residential subdivisions. Since founding the companies in 2008, he has managed the construction of over 40 new homes. Danny Olmstead also participates in community service, including volunteering as a food server and busboy at Glide Memorial Church.

Located in San Francisco, Glide is a spiritual community dedicated to creating an inclusive space that works to eliminate poverty and marginalization. They operate many programs to reach this end, including a daily free meals program that is the only one in San Francisco to serve three meals a day, 364 days a year. The meals program has been operating since 1969 and now serves around 2,000 meals a day. The program, which relies heavily on volunteer servers, also offers a dedicated breakfast period for seniors, a weekly women’s drop-in group, and special holiday meal service.
