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.

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.

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

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

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.

The Serving Information Page (https://sffnb.org/serving-schedule/) is up to date.

Sorry for any inconvenience during this transition period and for missing the last two Thursdays at 16th/Mission.  We will be there this Thursday at 6 PM.

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.



Food Not Bombs.  We ain’t playin’.  You ain’t payin’.

The recently fenced McCoppin Hub Park is always locked and closed.

Earlier posts:






When Supervisor Jane Kim proposed fencing in the park as a solution to the non-problem of people using an unenclosed public space, the deal included that the park would be open during certain hours and locked at night.

In reality, all the gates are always locked like this:


Indeed, the park contains a sign with hours of operation:


For accuracy, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department should replace this sign with one that reads,  “Closed Permanently Because of Civic Callousness and Political Cowardice.”

Here we are.  Millions spent to transform a dead end street into a useless locked off space.

Money for nothing.
