We’re happy to share an exciting new launch (coming to us from Anthony of SOCAP12), ShareTable.org.
ShareTable.org is a philanthropic platform created for this event, but if enough money is raised to feed 50,000 people, the organizers will expand the endeavor into an ongoing accelerator helping restaurants to benefit their communities.
On Friday May 31st, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will host an exhibit called “The Making of a Charitable Restaurant Movement,” in which some of the best local restaurants will team up to benefit the San Francisco and Marin Food Bank. The idea is to demonstrate a robust public interest in making food more meaningful by giving back.
More than forty of the city’s most respected restaurants will sell $50 gift certificates, of which $5 will fund meals for people in need; gift certificates will be available for purchase May 31 from 10am to 6pm at the museum and online.
For every dollar raised by this event, The Food Bank will be able to provide three meals for hungry people in the Bay Area—and the need has been rising in the last few years.
Congratulations to them and we hope to see you out there!
