San Francisco’s first PEACH & PLUM DINING MONTH is underway, running until September 15th. Recent research findings from a study performed at Texas A&M University indicate peaches and plums may help fight breast cancer. So 18 San Francisco chefs and restaurants will feature savory and sweet peach and plum dishes on their menu, donating $1 from every dish sold to The Breast Cancer Site’s Gifts That Give More program, which helps fund free mammograms. You can “like” the campaign on Facebook, and learn more about the study at MyFruitMyBody.com.
