On August 18, U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA 2nd District) visited 3rd Street. Our agency was one stop in a series of community events Congressman McGovern attended to identify the role that Congress could take in stopping food insecurity in America.
Joi Jackson-Morgan, 3rd Street's Executive Director, introduced Congressman McGovern to our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, 3rd StrEATS.
"3rd StrEATS is our response to food insecurity in our neighborhood," Jackson-Morgan said. "I wanted Congressman McGovern to see how our approach layers accessibility with high-quality, nutritious food that has historically only been available in the more affluent parts of San Francisco."
3rd StrEATS partners with Earl’s Organic Market to offer weekly fresh produce and groceries to Bayview Hunters Point youth and their families.
