Dear Food and Beverage Industry Member
Most of our work force in the downtown restaurant and hospitality industry lives in the Tenderloin District. These are hard working mom and dads â€“ sometimes holding down two jobs or working split shifts to make ends meet. When their children leave their homes, the find themselves in the middle of drugs, crimes gangs and prostitution. As you can imagine, this is a very unsafe environment for any child to be in. Fortunately, the Tenderloin After School Program helps over 200 children, from ages five to seventeen â€“ providing them with homework help, computer training, and a safe space to play games. The program also takes the kids on field trips, gives them encouragement to further their educations and keeps them safe from the influences on the street.
In San Francisco: Close to home we support the Tenderloin After School Program â€“ which provides valuable services to kids of families living in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. TASP serves as a shelter from the street culture and many harmful influences that abound in this area. The program provides kids with a safe space to be, where they can play, study and get the proper support and training needed to succeed in life.
In India: Mahatma Gandhiâ€™s intention behind his ashram at Kingsway Camp in New Delhi, India was to help uplift the underprivileged. On this very location, we are helping to fund the school for 300 children of Harijan (untouchable). This school helps us continue Gandhiâ€™s movement to eradicate social injustice of being labeled â€œuntouchableâ€. These children will help to uplift their impoverished community from within. It is the most basic of all human needs: To be clean and have nurturing human touch.
Why We Do This
This is an experiment to see what happens when the San Francisco Bay Area community â€“ comprised of caring people, business owners, volunteers and local chefs â€“ all focus their generosity. Itâ€™s a celebration of fine dining and merriment, yet working to empower the poorest children in India and the less fortunate kids right here in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco.
What is the power of giving? What is the power of love?
Come join and see for yourself!
