SF Fights Fires

San Francisco’s restaurants and food purveyor community is committed to helping those affected by the wildfires.

The devastation of the North Bay fires is heartbreaking. Thousands of people have been evacuated, thousands of homes have been lost, and the fires still rage on. This tragic destruction is impacting our employees, friends, families, partners and our greater community, and the need for short- and long-term support is significant.

In response to our desire to do something to help those who are displaced, we have formed a group who is quickly building systems and calling on other resources to help by first providing meals. As a group, we are harnessing the power of our community of restaurants & food purveyors with the idea that by focusing all those who are wanting to help, we will be most effective.
