Who We Help

www.18reasons.org18 Reasons empowers our community with the creativity and confidence needed to buy, cook, and eat good food every day. Through their classroom on 18th Street, they offer over 200 classes and dinners each year. Through their Cooking Matters program, they help over 2,000 low-income families each year learn to cook healthy food on a limited budget. Visit them at to volunteer, attend an event, or learn more.


Children of Shelters creates opportunities and provides educational funding for the children living in San Francisco's shelters in an effort to break the cycle of homelessness. Money gathered through fundraising efforts is dedicated to the Garden to Table program which brings cooking classes, gardening education and hands on garden experience directly to the children in the shelters in an effort to prepare them for a healthier, sustainable future.


California Food Policy Advocates dedicates the whole of its time, resources, and energy toward increasing low-income Californians’ access to healthy food. They make change – policy changes that increase participation in nutrition programs like CalFresh, school breakfast and lunch, child care, summer food, and more. And they work to make the food offered by these programs more healthy and appealing. Lend your support to their advocacy efforts by visiting
