Local nonprofit Nextcourse and Off the Grid, along with Bi-Rite, are putting on the second annual VEGGIE FIESTA on Saturday May 14th at Mission High School. Come by from 11am-3pm for a family-friendly event featuring vegetable-inspired items from some of the city’s fave food trucks. The signature dishes will showcase the best of the Bay Area’s spring produce. A portion of the food truck sales will be donated to the nutrition education program at Mission High.
Drinks from HonesTea will be available for sale, as well as a special treat that Mission High School’s Culinary Leadership Team developed as part of their nutrition education program, with all proceeds going towards the nutrition program. Plus, there will be games and a raffle for prizes, including a butchering class from 4505 Meats, ACT theater tickets, a three-day “romance package” in New Orleans, and two round-trip Virgin America airline tickets to anywhere in the United States.
Nextcourse, a San Francisco nonprofit that teaches sustainable food education and cooking to lower income groups, has been teaching nutrition and cooking classes at Mission High for the past five years.
