“Feeding Potrero” is a unique project supporting the well-being of families with trauma-informed nutrition, community-building and engagement.
Leah’s Pantry hires and trains a squad of residents who prepare two weekly community dinners for families in Potrero Hill Terrace and Annex. It is a collaboration with Bridge Housing’s Rebuild Potrero initiative, a Hope-SF project to renovate Potrero Hill public housing into a vibrant and healthy community, and the Healthy Generations Project, which provides tools for parents to reduce the impacts of toxic stress on the children and families of Potrero Hill.
Every Wednesday, our passionate community cooks prepare a nutritious, hearty and family-friendly meal, featuring fresh produce from donors such as Imperfect Produce, SF Marin Food Bank, and The SF Wholesale Produce Market Donation program. Some of the community’s beloved items on the menu are: Beef and Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie, Pasta with Pesto, and Crispy Cajun Fish. Experiencing a well-prepared and wholesome meal leaves diners of all ages feeling nourished and well cared for.
