The Breakfast Project threw its first party this past Saturday to celebrate our first full school year of programs, our awesome graduating fifth graders, and to raise $2,500 (a goal that we exceeded thanks to the generous support of our Harvey Milk and greater San Francisco community)!
The menu featured rainbow chard frittata with romesco and a pea shoot and radish salad; latkes with Pink Lady, Gala, and Granny Smith applesauce and Bellwether Farms yogurt; Eatwell Farm strawberries; cold brew from Linea Caffe; Peruvian chicha morada made by Harvey Milk parent Janette Fernandez and a team of student chefs; peppermint tea; and an array of beautiful pastries from Neighbor Bakehouse, Marla Bakery, Noe Valley Bakery, and Sunnyside Biscuits served with butter and Finnish blueberry kiisseli from our Breakfast Around the World repertoire.
Lorraine Walker of Eatwell Farm, their CSA member Ted, and an intrepid team of Harvey Milk students, staff, and parents helped set up and serve food at the event. We couldn’t have done this without the hard work and dedication of our superstar BAYAC AmeriCorps member Katie Storch and Principal Ron Machado. Thank you, Katie and Ron, for everything you do every day and to all the volunteers, donors, sponsors, and families who showed up in support of our work. It means so much and encourages us to keep going.
We were so excited to send everyone off with our own branded youth aprons and Baggu reusable shopping bags! Look for them on the streets of San Francisco. They’ll be hard to miss!
