        "Did you know:
        1 in 4 San Franciscans lacks access to healthy, nutritious food?
        And food insecurity exists across all neighborhoods in San Francisco?

        On November 21, please join nonprofit and public agencies who work on the front lines to fight hunger in our City as they share key findings from two new reports: “Assessment on Food Security in San Francisco” and “A Changing Landscape: Food Security and Services in San Francisco’s Tenderloin.”

        The reports provide key data and information about food insecurity for individual City Districts, as well as vulnerable populations. Hear directly from neighbors in need, who will share stories about their struggles to access and afford fresh, nutritious food.

        The agencies will provide an action plan to address food insecurity. Together we can end hunger in our City."
