Food for Thought comes to the Mission!

foodforthought

The first ever Food for Thought is coming to the Mission next Wednesday, November 11th. Participating Mission restaurants will donate 25-100% of their profits to Mission Graduates, a community group dedicated to empowering local youths by preparing them for college.

Food for Thought is the bright idea of Art Avitia, the new Development Director at Mission Graduates, who was nice enough to discuss this event with me on the phone today. Because the organization primarily works with Mission youths, they decided to reach out specifically to Mission restaurants.  “We are lucky to be supported by some great restaurants here in the Mission,” he commented. Art came onboard at Mission Graduates after successfully organizing Dining out For Life San Francisco. Having always valued education, Art was drawn to their ideals.  Mission Graduates works with students from Kindergarten through High School to support their education and provide them with the necessary tools to attend college.

Art is very enthused about this inaugural event, and believes it will be the first of many. He also feels that the local focus of this event will be a big contributor to its success.
