Here is a great article about a recent, large food donation to the San Francisco Food Bank:
This past Friday we had an abundance of fresh produce–everything from giant, ripe tomatoes to huge Granny Smith apples. We also provided folks with fresh bread, brown rice, beans and popcorn and cookies for treats.
On Thursday, March 5th come join us for dinner from 6pm on at Mission Street Food (see www.missionstreetfood.com). Our own Sara Miles will be cooking dinner with local produce–including just picked Myer lemons from Potrero Hill and Mission backyards, fresh herbs and all kinds of local goodies! All proceeds go directly to the Food Pantry. So gather some friends, bring your appetites and cash, and come have a fun San Francisco night!
This past Friday we served 600 people lots of fresh produce, including potatoes, pears, oranges and apples. We also provided folks with cottage cheese, bacon, brown rice and cookies. Be a part of our efforts; click on our DONATE button. Every dollar directly translates to food for those in need.
