Many parents are also going to be out of work, and struggling to make ends meet in the coming weeks and months. |
At the same time, our farmers are stuck with food that they were planning to sell, and are taking a hit now that farmers markets and other retail outlets are closed.
A coalition of local organizations is raising money to purchase food from local farms which will then go to Family of Woodstock and People's Place to make bagged lunches and hot meals for folks who need access to food. We are also planning to deliver meals to folks who can't leave home. Please consider making a donation of any size to help support our local economy and community members!"

A group of Skidmore students have created a covid-19 landing page with links to three maps: one for local farms, one for school food, and the other for restaurant access. The goal is to provide a helpful resource for both farmers and consumers who are in need of help connecting to each other at this time.
We are now looking for helping getting the word out about these maps to farmers and restaurants so they can start listing their businesses, and to consumers so they can begin using this resource. It is open source and editable, so its usefulness will grow as people contribute to it. Please forward to your networks and be in touch if you have any comments, suggestions, or questions.

Black Farmers Program
Florence Fang Community Farm
Our COVID-19 Emergency Food Service Program helps feed hard-to-reach low income youth, seniors and their families in Bayview-Hunters Point, a historically underserved neighborhood in San Francisco. We work on crop production of fresh local produce to feed more neighborhood families who are in extra need due to COVID-19 sheltering requirements and food shortages. See our program description below:
• Coordinate services with SFM Food Bank so there is no overlap in households receiving food service. We have identified 75-80 families who still need food service delivered to them, with average household size of 5.6 persons and total of 448 hard to reach residents.
• Maintain contact with, youth, seniors and their families regarding their needs for food
• Schedule and coordinate volunteers to tend to and harvest existing farm plots of 20-30 vulnerable farmers who are unable to come outdoors.
• Activate additional farm land, coordinate volunteers to grow and harvest crops on this additional farming area.
• Plan growing schedule and acquire seeds for fast growing crops such as Bok Choy, Summer Squash, baby carrots
• Recruit and coordinate volunteers to deliver the crops that become ready to harvest on a weekly basis.
• Coordinate partnerships with food suppliers (SFM Food Bank and SF Produce Market) to get more food to distribute, and coordinate with local community partners (CYC and Faces-SF) to get additional volunteers
• Make sure all activities are conducted following COVID-19 health safety guidelines.
With this project we hope to accomplish:
• Providing weekly delivery of fresh produce and food staples for up to 75 residents who are vulnerable persons to COVID-19 and/or low income.
• Grow, harvest and distribute 1500 pounds of additional fresh produce for local families in need of healthy foods
