On Saturday May 12th, vegans and omnivores alike should find a lot to like at the third annual San Francisco ~VEGGIE FIESTA~. Taking place on the football grounds of Mission High School from 11am-3pm, this family-friendly food event features food trucks, raffle prizes, music, and dancing. There’s even more to like: admission and parking are free.
Food vendors include Alicia’s Tamales, No Worries (vegetarian Filipino food), and El Norteño food trucks. Plus they’ll have information and demonstrations for gardening, food-related games, music, dancing (including salsa dancing lessons), and children’s activities. The raffle to benefit the Nextcourse food and nutrition programs will give away dozens of prizes, many food-related, from Tante Marie, Noe Valley Bakery, 4505 Meats, and Millennium. The grand prize is a three-day trip for two to New Orleans, including a stay at the Sully Mansion B&B and an airfare voucher.
Veggie Fiesta is presented by and benefits Nextcourse, whose collaborative programs inspire people to purchase, cook, and eat healthier, locally produced foods. Nextcourse’s projects include a program for sustainable food preparation, eating, and living at Mission High School.
