ENDING HUNGER HERE AT HOME: an evening of poetry for the san francisco food bank

SF Food Bank
On Sunday April 14th 2013, at 6 pm, please join us for a poetry evening to benefit the SF Food Bank, the first in a series.

“People are going to bed hungry in beautiful San Francisco. Right next door to our crowded restaurants, cafes and bars, someone is on a near-starvation diet. Lend a helping hand. The Food Bank serves families, children, seniors, and the homeless. Pablo Neruda said, “Poetry like Bread.” Let us come together, everyday. Let us do what our elected leaders can’t seem to do. Let us end hunger here at home.” –Neeli Cherkovski

The SF Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin. It’s a huge job that’s only gotten harder as our community struggles with a prolonged period of economic distress and record numbers of people are pushed to the point of hunger. Thankfully, thousands of caring donors and supporters have rallied around the Food Bank, enabling them to scale up operations to meet the need. With 120 employees, 25,000 volunteers each year, and 450 partner organizations throughout the community, the Food Bank is a vital lifeline for people in need of food assistance.

Please join us at The Emerald Tablet for an evening of poetry benefiting the SF Food Bank, and help us end hunger here at home. The following readers will perform their work:

Art Beck Judith Ayn Bernhard
Neeli Cherkovski Agneta Falk
Jack & Adelle Foley Maketa Groves
Jack Hirschman Clara Hsu
Ava Koohbor A.D. Winans

Please bring a shopping bag of non-perishable groceries or a cash donation. One hundred percent of every donation goes to support the SF Food Bank‘s programs. The event is free and open to the public. Complimentary snacks and drinks by donation will be available.
