Here is an update about the City of San Francisco’s misguided, ridiculous plan to fence off a relatively new public park in order to chase away homeless people and other park users;  the old “Sweep It Under The Rug” approach to social issues.

An earlier post complete with a link to an online petition:

Here’s the announcement from a former SFFNB bottom liner:

“Hey FNB,

Hope all is well! It’s not quite Food Not Bombs, but wanted to mention a Burrito Project is starting up in SF. An ad-hoc group meets and makes 1-300 burritos once a month, then hands them out / talks with folks in the Mission, Potrero, & SOMA. More than anything, we’re in need of more people who’d like to bike and hand out burritos. The next project is afternoon/evening of Monday, June 27 out of Martin de Porres (225 Potrero Ave). If any FNB folks are interested, you’re welcome to join, I think the best place to get updated details is on facebook:”

We will share food at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 4:30 PM rather than at our normal 6:00 PM time.

This change is for this week only.  We will return to our normal 6:00 PM time on Thursday June 9th.

Sorry for any inconvenience.  We will announce any future time changes on this web page.

Thank you.

Although the posts are infrequent, this website is active.  Most importantly, the serving information page and the accompanying map contain up to date information.

We always need volunteers and invite people to join us for a meal.

The Thursday group is looking for a pop-up tent to help keep our community members, volunteers and food dry in rainy weather.

If you have one for us, please contact us at

Some reminders:

Inspired by a SF Weekly article, SF Food Not Bombs has obtained, through a sunshine request, the SF Department of Building Inspections’ current list of empty and abandoned buildings.

Our friends at Homes Not Jails have the list in a user-friendly format here:

In the words of Emma Goldman, “Ask for work. If they don’t give you work, ask for bread. If they do not give you work or bread, then take bread.”

Supervisor Jane Kim, the decisive vote in the infamous Twitter tax break/giveaway, is leading the effort to put a fence around the newly renovated McCoppin Hub Plaza, specifically to bar homeless people from this public space.
