Don’t Miss Farming Hope’s Annual Fiesta Fundraiser at Mister Jiu’s
Sunday, September 16
Tickets: $108 + $3.15 fee
Farming Hope is a non-profit community organization providing transitional employment and training in the culinary industry to unhoused and low-income people in our community, something that is greatly needed right now. They have been doing some strong work in the San Francisco Bay Area, promoting self-sufficiency by creating equitable opportunities in local food businesses.
Every week, they host pop-up dinners you can buy tickets for (these community dinners highlight ingredients from their urban gardens and partner Imperfect Produce). Ticket donations range from $35–$45 per person, and help pay their employees while training on the job.
But on September 16, they’re hosting their
Fiesta at Mister Jiu’s , a second community fundraiser dinner designed to raise funds for their first community cafe in San Francisco! It’s going to be quite the night with top San Francisco restaurant partners, including Mission Chinese Food, Nopa and Nopalito, Tartine Bakery, Turtle Tower, Zero Zero, and Outerlands. There will also be drinks, live music, storytelling from their culinary and garden apprentices, a live auction, and activities (including a cactus-jam workshop).
You can buy tickets to the event, or even look into the various sponsor levels to help support their mission to provide jobs, training, and community to help end poverty and homelessness. Or book a ticket to their pop-up dinners and help support this amazing organization.

Avedano's Deli Opens in the Back of Maison Corbeaux, Serving Sandwiches and More
Deli open Wed–Sun 11am–7pm
On the corner of Divisadero and Sacramento in Pacific Heights is Maison Corbeaux, a well-stocked bottle shop that Kyle Nadeau opened in the former London Market. But there’s a new addition in the back you should be aware of: Avedano’s butcher shop in Bernal Heights has opened a satellite deli there. You’ll find a menu of hot and cold sandwiches, soup, pizzas, and tasty salads, including one that is like a niçoise with smoked trout. It’s all about the hot sandwiches (you can browse the wines while you wait): there’s an excellent Cubano, and their popular Smokey Moe, a grilled panino with smoked turkey, Swiss cheese, bacon, jalapeño jam, mayo, and pepperoncini. It’s worth noting the pastrami is housemade! You can grab a sandwich and head just two blocks away to the nearby Alta Plaza Park.
