A whole community of SF chefs come together to feed you

The 1940s kicked off a Great Migration of African Americans from the South to San Francisco’s Bayview. Shipyards, segregation and neglect came to define decades of this Black and increasingly Latinx neighborhood. But there are efforts today to highlight the area’s durability and creativity. See (eat) the Bayview Bistro Meal Box. These weekly food boxes provide a lifeline to surrounding culinary entrepreneurs (including nearby Hunters-Point). They highlight California, Mexican and soul flavors. Each box holds nine finger-licking dishes like grilled corn by the Vegan Hood Chefs and chicken enchiladas by Big H BBQ. And where else will you meet a historically frugal dish -- bread pudding -- made by Yes Pudding with roasted tomato & basil so that it becomes rich, savory and oh so satisfying? The inspiration: Organizers of the Bayview Bistro Meal Box tip their chef caps to a similar food-box program offered by La Cocina’s nonprofit culinary incubator for women entrepreneurs. 

Tip: Order by Wednesday, pickup on Friday (don’t miss your time window or your meal box will be donated!)  Good for two or four omnivores or vegetarians.
