The City Eats March 5, 2022 Event
On March 5th our young people went and prepared meals for the homeless and then we went out into the community to pass out meals to homeless on the street. The project was under the city of San Francisco’s The City Eats Program.
Since 2016, we have been building connections and collaborating within the Bayview-Hunters Point community. Three major collaborations have evolved thru A. Phillip Randolph Institute - San Francisco Chapter; SF Rec & Park - Heron's Head Park Eco Center; The City Eats SF; SF Parks Alliance and El Nino Training Center.
We have been blessed to have the opportunity to volunteer with The City Eats for the past 4 years - distributing food, hygiene kits, and socks to homeless and under-served individuals within the Tenderloin District.
Since late 2017, our connection with APRISF has grown into such a loving, familiar bond. Not only are we grateful for their fiscal sponsorship, but for all of the opportunities and extended connections as well. From marching in solidarity on MLK Day to working overtime to make sure every minority is counted, we all truly appreciate the work and support of this organization.
For the past year (almost two), our finesse queens have had the opportunity to work with some of the most renowned MMA trainers/athletes in Northern California. Specializing in areas of fitness training, mixed-martial arts, jui jitsu, self-defense, and fight fitness.
Our connection with the SF Rec & Park facility - The Eco Center at Heron's Head Park has been evolving for the past, almost two seasons. What started out as a wonderful opportunity to activate the space, quickly evolved into levels of community stewardship, youth program opportunities thru Greenagers, and access to adopt and build our own garden. Our young queens have not only graduated from their program, but also dedicate one Saturday morning each month to give back the love into the soil.
