Impact

Every October, Mission Graduates hosts a Mission District-wide fundraiser, partnering with some of the best restaurants the city has to offer and the Bay Area diners who love them to dine out and raise funds for a great cause – sending more Mission youth to college.

Join Mission Graduates and Mission District restaurants in ensuring that Bay Area diners join us in changing the face of the Mission District while supporting local restaurants and businesses for our 8th annual Food for Thought.

Mission District Restaurants

Restaurants all over the Mission District pledge to donate of the proceeds for one night in October. Mission Graduates supporters dine out en masse at participating restaurants, showing their support for businesses doing good in the Mission District.

Food for Thought Ambassadors are on hand to speak about Mission Graduates and give diners a chance to support Mission youth through a raffle drawing. The Food for Thought Raffle boasts an amazing list of prizes, including an all-expenses-paid trip to San Miguel de Allende, MEXICO!
