Dine in. Do good.
For the entire month of October, we’re hosting our signature fundraiser, Food for Thought, to send more young San Franciscans to college! It’s a city-wide fundraiser in partnership with community-minded businesses centered around food.
This year, we’ve come together to support local food businesses while raising funds for Mission Graduates’ work in expanding access to high education for low-income, children, youth, and families! When you feed your body, you feed their minds.
This year, restaurants all over San Francisco have pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds to make college a reality for San Francisco youth. Mission Graduates supporters dine out en masse at participating restaurants, showing their support for businesses doing good in San Francisco.
Past Restaurant Partners included:
Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack
Little Star Pizza – Valencia
Mission Bowling Club
Uno Dos Tacos
