El Rio is a queer bar, events and community space founded in 1978 and located in the Mission District of San Francisco. We actively invest in communities to promote social change. We actively invest in our local arts and music scene to give space for artists. We actively pursue underserved communities in the use of our space. As a recognized San Francisco legacy business we believe it is our responsibility to continue to make improvements for the betterment of the space and to better serve our community. These new bathrooms include one ADA and 2 new stalls and are long overdue.

La Cocina is a nonprofit working to solve problems of equity in business ownership for women, immigrants, and people of color. La Cocina provides talented entrepreneurs with affordable commercial kitchen space, mentorship, and access to market opportunities. La Cocina was born out of a belief that a community of naturally talented entrepreneurs, given the right resources, can create self-sufficient businesses that benefit themselves, their families, and their city.


Andina is a Venezuelan catering, Latina and women-owned company based in San Francisco, that specializes in Venezuelan traditional comfort and street food, like arepas and empanadas. Arepas are stuffed cornmeal cakes that are crispy outside and fluffy inside. The inspiration behind Andina is Chef Victoria Lozano's childhood memories, growing up in Venezuela she used to eat Arepas at least once a day at home, school or at a friend’s party. Their goal is to introduce Venezuelan food to the Bay Area through our vibrant and tasty cuisine.

Alma Y Sazon is a vegan Mexican food business born out of La Cocina and operated by immigrant women. Alma Y Sazon serves delicious tacos, tamales and other Mexican dishes with a focus on flavors and ingredients from Michoacan that are so tasty you won't miss the meat!

MexiQ by Chef Aaron is a Mexican/BBQ fusion rooted deep in East Oakland. After culinary school, Aaron and his fiancee, Leida, were inspired to start their own food business and they created MexiQ. They felt it was a perfect blend of their two cultures and experiences, growing up in East Oakland. ''We feel that MexiQ represents our cultures, our experiences, our friends and our family. MexiQ is as authentic as the cultures that brought us together."
