For the past seven years, we’ve partnered with local nonprofits to help advance causes we care about, from healthcare and education to food security, homelessness, civil rights, domestic violence prevention, investigative journalism, and countless other topics. Our “Credo Community Partners” work day-in and day-out to better our local community, and each month, we highlight one such group to raise awareness of their cause and raise funds to support their mission.
This November, we’re proud to support CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture), which works to cultivate a sustainable food system through the operation of farmers’ markets and educational programs.
Founded in 1994 to educate urban consumers about sustainable agriculture and to create links between urban dwellers and local farmers, CUESA manages the famous Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market in San Francisco and the vibrant Jack London Square Farmers’ Market in Oakland.
In addition, CUESA’s educational initiatives inspire eaters of all ages to participate in cultivating a healthy food system. Their innovative and engaging youth programs include cooking demonstrations, farm tours, and programs like Foodwise Kids and Schoolyard to Market.
There are several (delicious) ways to help out throughout the month. Order our featured wine-by-the-glass (Long Meadow Ranch Sauvignon Blanc, Rutherford, Napa Valley) or our signature appetizer (Arugula Salad, Chicories, Apples, Pomegranate Seeds, Balsamic Vinaigrette). Both options are locally sourced from sustainable farms, and for each one we sell in September, we’ll donate $2 back to CUESA.
Most important, join us for our CUESA “takeover night” on Wednesday, November 15, when 20 percent of all dinner sales will be donated back to the organization. Tell your family, friends, coworkers, casual acquaintances and strangers on the street; the more people we serve, the more we can contribute to this important mission.
