This Saturday, we are extremely pleased to host Jason Fox , former Executive Chef of Bar Tartine. Jason has been featured in San Francisco Magazine, and his cuisine has been called, "meticulously etched" and "a harmonious blend of complexity and satisfaction." On Saturday he will be presenting MSF's first Israeli Street Food Night, with a few Ashkenazi classics thrown in for good measure. Some of the food we'll be serving is, in Jason's words, "Biblical."
MSF profits will go to the Jewish Family and Children's Services Food Pantry. With the recession and massive cutbacks in community services for the poor, frail, and elderly, Jewish Family and Children's Services has seen a 50% increase in the number of people turning to them for emergency assistance. They serve five counties -- San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, San Mateo and Santa Clara -- and their food pantries helped put food on the table for more than 3,500 families in the last year alone. With a 160 year history of serving the community, JFCS helps people of all faiths and backgrounds in hard times. For many people today who've worked hard and exhausted their personal resources, JFCS is the only place to turn.
We will also be collecting any canned or packaged foods for the JFCS Food Pantry.
