San Francisco is a food-rich city, but hundreds of thousands of residents remain food insecure. Recent reports detail the challenges that many San Franciscans face in accessing nutritious food. Join us for a discussion of the steps that city agencies and nonprofit organizations can take to meet the Board of Supervisors’ goal of ending hunger in the city by 2020.
