Tasty Bites 2.15.05
Event updates every week; more extensive edibles every so often

Event Volunteers?

We've got another fun social event coming up in the beginning of March... This time it's connecting local, organic farmers with our San Francisco chefs.

Unfortunately, only farmers and chefs may attend.....unless you're a volunteer! We need a little help in the next few weeks with easy tasks you can do from home/work, and then a few folks to help on the actual day - Monday, March 7th.

It's going to be a fun eve at Oola Restaurant, and we'd love to have you be a part of it!

If you're into sustainability and interested in helping out, please email us.
