Taco Nights & Pop-Up Dinners

Attending a Farming Hope dinner or fundraiser is one of the many ways you can support our work, with the added bonus of enjoying delicious, nutritious food!

Every week, we gather around the dinner table to share a meal with people from our community. Buy tickets below to our latest dinners to support our cause.

May & June: Taco Thursdays & SF Pop Ups!

Join us for a community taco night with handmade tacos or a 4-course Californian Mexican dinner! Chef Kevin, Farming Hope co-founder, and Chef Holden, Sprouts Cooking Club instructor, will highlight ingredients from our urban gardens, and Imperfect Produce to bring you dishes like roasted cactus and soft scrambled egg tacos, or a main entree like purple potato green tomatillo enchiladas. Celebrate our mission through communal dining!

Suggested ticket donations range from $29-$45 per person. Ticket sales help us pay our employees for the hard work they do while training on the job to transition out of homelessness. Book early before seats sell out as we have limited capacity. Thank you in advance for your support! For private dinners or advanced group tickets, email melody@farminghope.org.

Coming Soon: Farming Hope & Mister Jiu’s Community Dinner

We are partnering with Mister Jiu’s to raise funds for our sustainable gardening projects in San Francisco.

We will be selling a limited number of tickets for a community, family style dinner with food from Mister Jiu’s, Cala, Rice Paper Scissors, and more. Join like-minded foodies and community builders and meet the teams behind Mister Jiu’s and Farming Hope. We’ll kick the night off with cocktails and small bites and live music from a local folk band, and then serve a seated family style dinner. We hope you can join us! Just by dining with us, you’ll be making a dent in homelessness by providing jobs to plant urban gardens. Feed it forward by buying dinner tickets when they go on sale soon!
