Saturday, July 18th (that's this upcoming Saturday!), 8am-10pm at Mission Pie, 2901 Mission St. (corner of Mission St. and 25th St.)
Jam Sale out front from 11am-5pm (or until all the jam is gone!)
Please join us and our very good friends at Mission Pie to celebrate San Francisco's sweet and juicy plum season, which is currently in full swing. A portion of the sale of every plum frangipane tart on Saturday, July 18th goes to benefit Produce to the People. This is a win win fundraiser because you can come out, support the great work being done by BOTH PttP and Mission Pie, and eat some of the most delicious sweet treats in the city!
PttP will be representing out front with a table of locally harvested, handmade jams for sale for only $5 each. All the fruit has been picked by Produce to the People in and around San Francisco, and canned with love by the amazing high school students in our Summer 2009 Youth Employment and Education Program. All the jams are made with organic backyard fruit and organic, fair trade sugars. They are perfect for your morning toast, on top of a bowl of ice cream, and also make great gifts!
You can also stop by just to meet some of our awesome youth, hear more about what we do, or register your garden for harvest! And as always, more information about Produce to the People can be found on our website: www.producetothepeople.org .
Please pass the word on to your friends in the bay area, hope to see you there!
Produce to the People (PttP) is a non-profit organization in San Francisco, dedicated to aiding the food security and health of our community through garden and food education, the creation of green jobs for youth, and the growth, harvest, and dispersal of organic backyard and community grown produce. We support the right of everyone in our community to have access to fresh, nourishing food and believe that empowering youth and adults to take part in their local food system can create change that will systemically improve the way we eat, and in turn our health and well being as a whole. We are especially focused on ensuring access to healthy food for underserved and low-income members of our community, and green jobs to youth with barriers to employment. We believe that we can only achieve food security through a collective effort, and we engage in many community partnerships with non-profits, businesses, schools and individuals to work together towards a more sustainable and healthy food system in San Francisco.
