Kaye “Nana” Griffin, an Indybay co-founder, passed on in early August. Nana was involved in the Bay Area activism scene for decades, including queer liberation, housing and many other local struggles. Nana also carried one of the first Indybay press passes. Her memorial service is on Saturday, October 21 at 2 PM (doors open at 1:30 PM) at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St. in San Francisco.

John Gilmore shared an Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) advertisement while recalling, “Kaye got around to many Bay Area subcultures. Here’s one of her appearances in the digital rights subculture. This full page ad appeared in 2003 in Rolling Stone magazine, featuring Kaye in the middle of the lineup. […] She was involved in so many things that I suspect that none of us knew the full extent of her activities and activism.”

Keith McHenry also provided a short reflection, “Kaye spent many hours volunteering with San Francisco Food Not Bombs and reported on the arrests and court cases posting on Indybay. She participated in nearly all the huge protests with her pet rat on her shoulder and I remember her insightful comments about a wide range of issues. Her vision of what is wrong with the political and economic system and ideas of where to take action to move our world forwards was spot on.”

We will resume our long standing weekly sharing at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 6 PM, ending a three week hiatus.

We have shared food on Thursdays at this location for many years.  For a few months, we switched to Wednesdays.  Now we are back on Thursdays.

More information here:  https://sffnb.org/serving-schedule/

We always need volunteers and invite anyone to eat with us.  Please spread the word.

 

Some unfortunate news.  Because SF Food Not Bombs has lost access to our Wednesday cookhouse until at least early October, we must suspend our Wednesday sharing at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza for now.  Hopefully, we can resume it in early October.

The Friday sandwich sharing remains active.  More information here:  https://sffnb.org/serving-schedule/

The San Francisco Free Eats Chart is a great resource for alternative free food servings or volunteer opportunities.

We will update this website about the status of the weekly 16th/Mission BART Plaza sharing as soon as possible, no later than early October.

Regrettably, we must cancel our weekly Wednesday sharing at the 16th and Mission BART Plaza for September 13, 2017.

Sorry for any inconvenience.  Please spread the word.

We have switched the day of our long standing food sharing at the 16th and Mission BART Plaza.

Starting on August 9, 2017, we will share food there on Wednesday at 6 PM.  Everything other than the day remains the same.

Thanks to everyone who has helped share food or has eaten food with us on Thursday at the 16th and Mission BART Plaza over the years.

Sorry for any inconvenience the day change may cause.

Please spread the word.

Unfortunately, we will not be sharing food on Thursday, July 6th at 16th/Mission BART Plaza.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Four months after erecting a temporary construction fence to close the McCoppin Hub park, contractors hired by the San Francisco Department of Park and Recreation have begun building the permanent fence around the park.

Nearby resident and blogger Michael Petrelis reports that the construction workers say that they will complete the fence by the end of the week.

Will the park ever be open?  Closed only at night?  Why is the city fencing off this park while many others remain unfenced and always open?

Well, we know the answer to the last question.  Too many poor people, some homeless, hung out at McCoppin Hub.  Liberal sanctuary city San Francisco can’t have that.

A quick update on the status of the shuttered McCoppin Hub park.

It remains enclosed by a temporary construction fence, erected around the beginning of February, 2017.  The City of San Francisco has made no visible progress towards the building of a permanent fence.  The only change is plants growing in cracks in the pavement because the city is neglecting the park.

In short, San Francisco has closed the park as a punitive measure to prevent “undesirable” people from using it.
