Thursday August 20th: Save the Bay and Project Open Hand

This Thursday we are extremely pleased to host Fred Sassen of Farallon. Fred is a graduate of CCA and has been cooking professionally for 8 years. He's spent the last 4 years under chef Mark Franz and Ryan Simas, who will also be cooking on Thursday. In addition to a robust offering of oceanic delights, Fred is also unveiling a house made charcuterie plate--11 months in the making.

Fred and his crew are donating all of their profits to Save the Bay, which protects the San Francisco Bay from pollution and inappropriate shoreline development, as well as educating thousands of students per year. MSF profits will go to Project Open Hand, which distributes 2175 meals and 190 bags of groceries to the homebound or critically ill each day.

Thank you so much for supporting both Project Open Hand and Save The Bay. As the the Bay's leading champion since 1961, Save The Bay protects the Bay from pollution and development, educates 5,000 students on the Bay each year and engages the community in restoring habitat. We can always use more volunteers and folks can sign up on our website, www.saveSFbay.org. Thanks again!
