This October 26 in Civic Center Plaza, San Francisco will host the first ever Greater Good Food Fair to celebrate real food, free of genetic modification. Organized by Label GMOs SF and Slow Food San Francisco, and sponsored by Vital Systems, Slow Food San Francisco, Rainbow Grocery, and Bi-Rite, the Greater Good Food Fair will celebrate the leaders, retailers, and organic farmers who are cultivating social responsibility with their work and practices.
The Fair will be free and open to the public, and will feature speakers, organic and regionally-produced foods from local businesses, and cooking demonstrations. Participants will cultivate an understanding of the impact of their daily food choices and learn what they can do to support organic and non-GMO producers and organizations. The Fair will take place in San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza, which is in front of City Hall and bounded by Polk, McAllister, Hyde, and Grove Streets. Please RSVP for the Fair on Facebook, or through Eventbrite.
Leading up to the Fair is the Greater Good Film Series, which runs Wednesday, October 9th through Thursday, October 24th.
Do you believe in just and sustainable food? If so, we need your help in three ways.
Volunteer. We need help setting up, cleaning up, monitoring rented equipment, and monitoring proper sorting of recycling, compost, and trash. All shifts between 8am-6pm on Saturday are open. Please email Priscilla if you can help!
Donate. Although our sponsors have been extremely generous, this type of event is very costly, and we need your help to make sure we can cover our costs. Please consider donating – no amount is too small or too large! Help us make this truly a community collaboration for food justice and sustainability.
Spread the word. Tell you friends about the event on Facebook, Twitter and through email! You can also download our printable poster and postcards to share. Here’s a suggested tweet for Twitter: Greater Good Food Fair Saturday, 11-4 in #SF Civic Center! Music, speakers, #organic food, cooking demos. Info at ggfood.org
