Thursday January 28th: Simple and Wintery for 826 Valencia and Meals on Wheels

This Thursday we're pleased to welcome back Tommy Halvorson, executive chef of The Phoenix Supper Club, a San Francisco based roaming supper club, and co-founder/executive chef of EAT, a weekly event held every Monday night at 111 Minna in which he and his crew turn 111 Minna into a restaurant. Tommy will be presenting a menu of "Simple and Wintery" dishes.

A portion of Tommy's proceeds will benefit 826 Valencia, which supports students ages 6 to 18 with their writing skills, and helps teachers get their students excited about their writing. MSF profits will go to Meals on Wheels, which has been providing isolated, homebound seniors with nutritious meals, daily human contact and supportive services for 38 years. Meals on Wheels is facing an especially challenging increase in demand as the state government recently slashed the budget for in-home health care programs for seniors and individuals with disabilities, entirely removing support from 40,000 recipients, and cutting back service for another 85,000 recipients.
