Free Community Dinner at St. Cyprian’s

Every second thursday of the month, students from USF’s Community Garden Outreach class will host a free community dinner at St. Cyprian’s church located at Turk and Lyon, San Francisco. The dinners are made possible by generous donations of fresh produce that otherwise would go to waste from local farmers around the city.

November would be our last dinner for the year, so definitely stop by and fill up your bellies!

Here are some photos (click to enlarge):


We made tamales that night and it was delicious!

See that line building up?
It’s full of hungry people and missing non other than your good ol’ self!


Garden Salad and Roasted peppers with beets

Fresh as it can get, pesto.


Personally, by far the beast homemade vegetable soup I’ve ever had!

Roasted vegetables, Stuffed peppers (also one of my faves for the night), and sauteed green with almonds


Apple crisps that were gone in a snap!

A hearty meal that came from fresh sources and kind hearts.


Last but not least, we would love to make a huge shout out to all the farmers who’ve donated to us.

Please support them at your local farmers markets and check them out on Facebook or Twitter and their very own websites for more info.

Give us a shout out when you drop by for dinner next month. See ya there!
