Feeding San Francisco
Wednesday, September 17, 2014, 1:00 am - 3:00 am
San Francisco is home to some of the best food in the world, and yet many residents are food insecure, meaning they don’t regularly have enough nutritious food to support their basic health. In December the Board of Supervisors adopted an ambitious resolution to end hunger in the city by 2020. In honor of national Hunger Action Month, CUESA is convening a conversation with leaders of some of the innovative programs that are feeding the community.
- Teri Olle, Associate Director, Policy & Advocacy, SF-Marin Food Bank, and Chair, San Francisco Food Security Task Force
- Mary Risley, Founder, Food Runners
- Anne Quaintance, Chief Operations Officer, Meals on Wheels
- Carle Brinkman, Market Match Coordinator and Program Manager of the Farmers’ Market Access & Equity Program of the Ecology Center
A $5 donation will be requested at the door (no one turned away for lack of funds).
The talk will be followed by a reception with farmers market nibbles and seasonally-inspired refreshments provided by Bi-Rite, and the opportunity to learn more about how you can help end hunger.
