The Feeding Potrero Catering Team is now serving two meals a week, making an even bigger impact on the families that attend Healthy Generations evening programs at Potrero Terraces and Annex public housing. The families served offer high praise for menu items such as: tuna noodle casserole, turkey tacos, and sweet and sour chicken stir-fry. They also share how they feel nourished and cared for by the quality home-cooked meals they receive. The Team's unofficial motto: Love People, Feed them Good Food.

We are the recipient for Nickels for Non-Profits at the Whole Foods in Potrero Hill. YES! What does this mean? From now until July 3rd, when shoppers bring their own bags and opt to donate their bag credits, those 5 cent donations go to Leah’s Pantry. At the end of the quarter, we receive a check with the total amount of bag credit donations. So please shop at Potrero Whole Foods and bring your own bags!

18 people graduated from our Food Smarts Training Program (FSTP) in April. FSTP is our two day training program that builds capacity in our partner agencies to teach Food Smarts Workshops to their clients. It was an engaged and diverse group with participants representing organizations like SF General Hospital, Community Grows, YMCA, Providence Foundation, and the SF Department of Public Health. We covered various topics, including: basic nutrition, Food Smarts curriculum, chronic disease prevention, and facilitation strategies. Our next FSTP will be November 3-4, 2016.

In March, we began our partnership with Homebridge, whose mission is to provide high-quality home care and supportive services for the elderly and disabled. Homebridge felt that our expertise in nutrition, label literacy, healthy cooking, and resource management (e.g. shopping on a budget), would enhance its intensive home care provider training. What a great way to promote healthier lives for care providers and the vulnerable populations with which they work!
