Thursday 4/16: Fan Appreciation Night for Meals on Wheels

Mission Street Food has featured many impressive (and generous) guest chefs over the past few weeks, but the real heart of the project has been you guys. Tonight we will feature some of our fan favorites and are inviting one of our most loyal regulars to document you. She's been spotlighting local fashions for over two years on her blog, the Fashionist, and will take pictures (at least while it's bright). You can vote on your favorite men's and women's style by emailing us at missionstreetfood@gmail.com The winners will each receive a free dinner for two and a bottle of wine.

Tonight's charity will be Meals on Wheels which has been providing isolated, homebound seniors with nutritious meals, daily human contact and supportive services for 38 years.

Yay! So excited to collaborate with you on Thursday. I know it's fashionable to play it cool, but I'm a gusher: http://fashioni.st/2009/04/mission-street-food-and-fashionist.html

What a wonderful mission! Congratulations, this project is a brilliant idea. i just found out about it, and i will show up to bring friends over to eat :-)

I'd like to bring to your attention these two non-profits that I'm involved in right now; they're local homegrown grassroots food justice and school garden project to educate high-risk low income to eat fresh and to exercise:

People's Grocery in West Oakland, http://www.peoplesgrocery.org
and
Urban Sprouts of San Francisco, http://urbansprouts.blogspot.com/

They'll both have fund raising events coming up soon, end of April. Pls check their websites for more info. You're all welcomed. They'd also benefit a great deal from your donation, no doubt.

Thanks in advance and best wishes to yours :-)

Happy Eating, Happy People, Happy Community.
Cheers,
