Food for Thought 2020

Your support for Food for Thought allows us to continue serving over 4,800 children, youth, and families - from low-income, Latinx, Black, and immigrant communities in San Francisco - on their path to and through college and careers.

This year, whether you decide to order ahead or dine out, let's show up for our students and families when we're needed most!

For the entire month of October, we’re hosting our signature event, Food for Thought, to send more young San Franciscans to college! It’s a city-wide event in partnership with community-minded businesses centered around food.

This year, we’ve come together to support local food businesses while raising funds for Mission Graduates’ work in expanding access to higher education for low-income, children, youth, and families! When you feed your body, you feed their minds.
