Saturday, August 30 | MarketBar | 1 Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA | 7:00pm | $46.70


Join us at the Market Bar this Labor Day Weekend to show your support for the California Food and Justice Coalition and our work to create a community-driven, sustainable and just food system for all Californians.

We have a big year planned! Help us make it happen. A portion of the dinner proceeds will go towards helping us:
- direct monies available in the 2008 Farm Bill to the people that need it: urban and small farmers and grassroots groups working to rebuild local food systems and increase access to healthy food;
- building upon our new training and mentorship program to grow and support the movement; and
- future advocacy campaigns for food justice.

And of course the meal will be delicious. The menu will feature:

• Fresh cured Castelvetrano green olives
• Arugula & roasted-fig salad with balsamic vinaigrette
• Allstar Organics garden tomato salad with burrata cheese
• Marin Root Farm roasted beets, candied walnuts and Point Reyes blue cheese
• Brentwood corn soup w/ rocoto pepper puree
• Mary’s organic chicken paillard and eggplant caponata
• Grilled California sturgeon w/ peperonata & caper aioli
• Spinach and mushroom ravioli with an heirloom tomato sauce
• Fresh shelling beans with arugula
• Yukon Gold potatoes
• Glazed carrots, and
• Nectarine crisp with rose petal ice cream.

Fresh produce will be sourced from nearby farms, including Allstar Organics, Marin Root Farms, Star Route, Alemany Farm and Tairwa Farms.
