Each year we partner with 6 local nonprofits, bettering our community through children, families, and food. Every Monday, a portion of your meal goes towards our Community Partner. Eat Good Do Good Join Us.

Farming Hope is a culinary job training nonprofit for formerly incarcerated and homeless neighbors here in San Francisco. Our restaurant is located at Manny's in the Mission, and our garden is on Divisadero and Eddy St. Learn more at farminghope.org or on Instagram @farminghope.
In Oakland we are partnered with:
The Oakland Literacy Coalition brings together a network of over 80 organizations working to ensure that every Oakland child learns and loves to read. The ability to read has profound impact on a child’s ability to succeed in school and access life’s opportunities. Yet, Oakland has a serious literacy crisis – only a third of elementary school students have the literacy skills to access grade-level material. Students face many different challenges on the path to reading success, which cannot be fully addressed through any single program or service. Solving this crisis will take a collective effort of schools, families, and community partners working in various ways to remove barriers and expand opportunities for learning. As a coalition, we connect programs and service providers into a citywide movement and serve as a hub for learning and training, collaboration, and advocacy to strengthen our combined impact. We also run a mini grants program to sponsor family literacy events across the city that celebrate the fun of reading and give away books. Last year, we supported over 120 events and distributed over 12,500 books to Oakland kids!
