This special event is to celebrate the release of a book entitled "Notes From a Revolution: Com/co, the Diggers & the Haight", about the Diggers, and will benefit the Coalition on Homelessness, while the Coalition attempts to replicate a Diggers giveaway in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park from 4-6 PM.

The Diggers were a radical community-action group of activists and Improv actors operating from 1966–68, based in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco. The group sought to create a mini-society free of money and capitalism. The Diggers provided a free food service in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park in Haight-Ashbury every day at 4 p.m., generally feeding over 200 people, created a free store, opened a free medical clinic and threw free parties with music provided by the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and other bands.
