Children of Shelters - 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.
