Did you know:
1 in 4 San Franciscans lacks access to healthy, nutritious food?
And food insecurity exists across all neighborhoods in San Francisco?
On November 21, please join nonprofit and public agencies who work on the
front lines to fight hunger in our City as they share key findings from two
new reports: “Assessment on Food Security in San Francisco” and “A Changing
Landscape: Food Security and Services in San Francisco’s Tenderloin.”
The reports provide key data and information about food insecurity for
individual City Districts, as well as vulnerable populations. Hear directly
from neighbors in need, who will share stories about their struggles to
access and afford fresh, nutritious food.
The agencies will provide an action plan to address food insecurity.
Together we can end hunger in our City.
The reports are produced by the San Francisco Food Security Task Force and
the Tenderloin Hunger Task Force, coalitions of nonprofit and public
agencies working to improve access to affordable, fresh, and nutritious
food for the City’s most vulnerable populations.
This Public Hearing will take place during the Neighborhood Services and
Safety Committee Meeting.
Members of the task forces supporting this hearing include: Community
Living Campaign, Department of Aging and Adult Services, Department of
Children, Youth and their Families, Episcopal Community Services of San
Francisco, Glide Foundation, Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, Project Open
Hand, Salvation Army, San Francisco Department of Public Health, San
Francisco Human Service Agency, SF and Marin Food Banks, SF Environment,
St. Anthony’s, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation, and UC San
Francisco Center for Vulnerable Populations at SFGH.
