Here is a timely, informative essay from Ron Jacobs posted on “Counterpunch”:

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/02/21/stamping-out-hunger/

We have updated the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection’s list of empty and abandoned buildings through December, 2017 on this webpage:  https://sffnb.org/list-of-san-francisco-empty-and-abandoned-buildings/.

Sorry for the slight delay for this update.  The SF Department of Building Inspection had some sort of difficulty receiving my email request and follow up email for its publicly available list.  I filed a complaint with the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force, which prompted DBI’s delayed response.  I then withdrew the complaint.

The next update will be in early May, 2018.

If anyone wants the complete DBI database, contact us at sffnbvolunteers@riseup.net.

The authorities in El Cajon arrest people for providing mutual aid to those in need.

Our Thursday sharing continues indefinitely at 16th/Mission BART Plaza at 6 PM.  Please join us.

We are still in a temporary cookhouse near 24th/Mission BART until we hopefully move back to our normal cookhouse in February.  The current plan is to continue our Thursday sharings uninterrupted.  Check the website for updates.

If you want to help with food preparation, cooking or cleaning up, please contact Micah at 415-738-9249 for further instruction.

Our Serving Info page (https://sffnb.org/serving-schedule/) has additional information.

As always, you can contact us by email at sffnbvolunteers@riseup.net.

We will be sharing food as usual on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 6 PM at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza.

We are still using our temporary smaller cookhouse near 24th/Mission BART.  If you want to help with food preparation, cooking or cleaning up, please contact Micah at 415-738-9249 for further instruction.

Please spread the word.

After a short holiday break, we will resume our weekly Thursday sharing at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza at 6 PM on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

However, because of people moving in and out of our regular cookhouse at 3030B 16th Street, we are moving the cookhouse to the apartment of one of volunteers for January 4th and maybe for a few more weeks until we can return to our normal spot.  Check the website for updates.

Unfortunately, the interim cookhouse, near the 24th/Mission BART Station, is smaller, limiting the number of volunteers.  We still need and want help.  Please call Micah at 415-738-9249 for further instruction.

The Serving Information Page (https://sffnb.org/serving-schedule/) is up to date.  Here is the current Thursday information:

Here is the article:  http://www.sfexaminer.com/residents-grow-impatient-fenced-off-soma-plaza/

San Francisco’s Real Estate Division claims that it must keep the park closed because the construction of the fence triggered an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirement that apparently no one considered ahead of time.

In order to make the enclosed park ADA compliant and re-open it, the City must build a $45,000 wheelchair ramp, although there is no time frame for that further renovation.

Presumably, the unenclosed park was ADA compliant because of its multiple egresses.

Unfortunately, we will not be sharing food at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza on Thursday until January 4, 2018 at 6 PM.

We must cancel our regular sharings for December 21st and December 28th.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

These articles are informative, worthwhile and timely.
