 San Francisco, CA – Some of San Francisco’s leading chefs are teaming up with Mission Dolores Academy to support this private, innovative K-8 school’s effort to break the cycle of poverty for many inner-city students. This year, the school’s annual benefit luncheon features a three-course culinary collaboration orchestrated by Slanted Door owner and chef Charles Phan with contributions from other top chefs. Taking place May 9th at 11:30 a.m. at the Merchants Exchange Building in downtown San Francisco, the event meldscreative cuisine and inspiring art and entertainment, all while giving inner-city children opportunities they need to learn and succeed.

The chef collaboration is the brainchild of Phan, who grew up in the Mission and is a longtime supporter of Mission Dolores Academy and its predecessor, Megan Furth Academy.

“I feel it is my duty to help our inner-city youth become successful, contributing members of their community,” Phan said. “Mission Dolores Academy is a part of this effort, and I am excited to be involved.”

Phan will be joined by Laurence Jossel of NOPA, Mourad Lahlou of Aziza, Anne Walker and Kris Hoogerhyde of Bi-Rite Creamery, Craig Stoll of Delfina, and Thad Vogler of Bar Agricole. Read more here.
