Menu detail

Thanksgiving Box for a Family in Need
Each meal purchase will allow us to purchase a box of ingredients for a family: a turkey, 40# of fresh produce (potatoes, onions, yams, apples, citrus, greens and anything else that is surplus!), bread from local bakeries (provided by Bi-Rite, Tartine, and Whole Foods), and non-perishables (including dry beans, rice, canned cranberry and pumpkin), and 2# of Peet’s coffee to round out a full Thanksgiving feast. This year, Free the Need will be making 350 food and turkey boxes give away to families in the Mission District and within the greater Bay Area. The boxes are put together by an all-volunteer crew here in San Francisco and they have been running this program here for the past 28 years.
