I hope your early-fall late summer is keeping you warm.
I've been having a hard time working inside when it's so nice out, so maybe a return to overcast is what I need!
In the meantime, please consider coming to this event:
Sunday, November 9th from 11am to 3pm is the second In Search of Good Food bike ride. The ride, led by ISoGF director and food justice activist Antonio Roman-Alcalá and co-sponsored by CAFF, will cover mostly flat ground, around the mission and southeast portions of the city. We will have guest speakers along our route, which includes: Mission Pie, local purveyors of sustainable pie and farm education for youth from Mission High School; The Free Farm Stand, a project that gives away food grown in San Francisco; Veritable Vegetable, one of the west coast's oldest organic food distributors; the site of the People's Food System warehouse, where parts of the sustainable food system were born in the 70s; and SF General Hospital, where we'll hear from Aliza Wasserman from Community Alliance with Family Farmers about the challenges and emerging opportunities for bringing local and sustainable food at an institutional scale.
The ride will be approximately four hours long, with snacks and bathroom breaks planned in! This event is a benefit for the In Search of Good Food movie project, so please reserve your space (limited to 40) by buying a ticket at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/47762
or write to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Thank you and please pass the info on!
