MSF profits will go to St Mary's Center in Downtown and West Oakland which provides a variety of services in its community, including giving some groceries to 40 families per month and daily meals to 80 homeless senior citizens six times per week.

Notes: This Saturday *only* we will be serving from a Taco Truck at 3rd and Mission starting at 7:30 and also building and serving food from a night market in the sculpture courtyard of the Yerba Buena Center. The party, Big Idea Night runs from 9pm to 3am and we are preparing enough food to go the distance. We hope to see you there, and while you can no longer RSVP, there should be plenty of room over the course of the night.

In other scheduling notes, Thursday June 11th is Douglas Monsalud and the Kitchenette crew.

We will be closed due to travel on June 13th, and then back to our regular schedule thereafter. Thanks.

So the 7:30 truck is separate from the 9PM YBCA RSVP event, right?

they are connected. the truck is just going to open a little earlier and be available on the street. you will need to stick around until 9 for the night market to open if you want to try the full menu though. more details shortly.
