Event description


Your ticket includes:

  • A taste of the brand new daytime menu from Farming Hope before it launches
  • Conversation with the Culinary Director and chef apprentices about the new cuisine
  • Enough food to to leave full and happy

Join the Farming Hope squad to feast on our new menu, before anyone else! This gathering is part of our series of fundraiser dinners at Manny's in San Francisco. We feature guest chefs, community discussion, and the chance to break bread with people from all walks of life in our city.

Each month, these fundraisers allow us to raise money to fulfill our unique mission - paying direct wages to formerly incarcerated and homeless folks who work in our transitional employment program.

This October 3, we'll join to eat together and hear the story of Farming Hope. We're giving you a preview of the brand new, veggie-forward Mediterranean inspired menu Farming Hope is unrolling at Manny's. Want to be the first to try the new food and party with the chefs? Get tickets for you and a friend today!

The chef of the evening will be Farming Hope's own Larry Feygin, our brand new Culinary Director in his debut dinner.

Farming Hope serves food and runs our culinary job training program at Manny's, a civic gathering space in San Francisco's Mission District. Our guest chef dinners serve two goals: get people outside of their social bubble to talk about the issues of the day; and raise funds to support our programming and number of trained apprentices.

To support our venue host, we ask guests to purchase wine and beer for the evening at the bar from Manny's.

Here's a selection of menu items from the new daytime menu included in this dinner:

**We hope you understand the dinner is painstakingly prepared and cooked by our staff as a set menu. If you have allergies or restrictions to a particular item on the menu, there will be many alternative items at the table. But we won't be able to make many changes the night of, since it's a presentation of a new menu we designed. It's like going to a friend's house for dinner - we serve what we have and don't have a huge pantry of alternatives! Overtime, we will be able to make more adjustements for everyone, so you won't miss out. If you absolutely require dietary accomodations for this event, be sure to e-mail team@farminghope.org prior to the event to let us know.**


What is the dress code for community pop up diners?

Come as you are! No dress code, we are a casual bunch.

I want to join the conversation and try the food, but can't afford a ticket right now. Is it possible to get a ticket still?

Of course! We have free tickets available for community guests, please reach out to Farming Hope staff in person or email team@farminghope.org to inquire about community tickets.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Manny's is located at 3092 16th Street. Parking is difficult, particularly at night. We highly recommend taking BART if possible, as the 16th St. Mission Station is one block from Manny's. There is also a bus stop and Ford Go Bikes stand right outside Manny's front door. There is a city-operated parking garage nearby at 16th and Hoff St., entrance on Hoff St.

Are children welcome?

Yes! But please note - everyone that attends our dinners is required to have a ticket.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email team@farminghope.org. We will do our best to respond in a timely manner, but please understand our time is limited in responding promptly since operating a restaurant and job-training nonprofit seven days a week.

What's the refund policy?

No refunds, a donation never hurt anyone (and it has helped).

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?


Do I have to be there at 6:30 pm sharp or can I come in whenever? I really hate commitment and being on time.

Dinner is served as ready, and people will be hungry, so if you're late, you'll miss some of the courses - we recommend coming early and having fun with us together throghout the evening.
