Women's Collective provides local food with deep roots for SF Mission Neighborhood Arts Festival
My colleague Robynn Takayama sent me info about the Neighborhood Arts Festival in San Francisco this weekend, sponsored by the SF Arts Council. This Saturday it's their 40th Anniversary Bash: A half-day celebration featuring the 40th anniversary reunion with founding members of the program, interviews with the veterans of the Neighborhood Arts Program and folks who create community arts today, as well as a fair of arts organizations.
AND. . .delicious food provided by the Women's Collective of La Raza Centro Legal, one of the partners in the San Francisco-based Domestic Worker Safety and Dignity Project of New Routes. I'm almost considering driving the 150 miles to the City because I've had the pleasure of eating a meal prepared by this amazing group of women. <grin>
Congratulations, La Raza, on being part of a vibrant neighborhood, bringing good food and community spirit to the Mission. Sometimes it's art or media or politics that brings us together, but food always has the ability to connect us all. Hope you are eating well, and sharing food with others in your community, wherever you are!
