Zendesk and sf.citi present: The Fresh Food Dilemma
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
The Fresh Food Dilemma: How can Central Market and Tenderloin Residents store and prepare healthy food when access to kitchen facilities is limited?
Together with sf.citi, we are challenging the local design and development community to find an innovative solution to the Central Market community's fresh food dilemma. Join us for a lively panel that aims to solve a longtime food justice issue facing residents in the Central Market neighborhood.
The panel will be moderated by Tomio Geron of Forbes.
Jonathan Axtell, associate producer, Social Capital Markets
Karen Nemsick, executive director, Rebuilding Together San Francisco
Dan Parham, CEO, Neighborland
Matthias Mormino, legislative aide, Supervisor Jane Kim
Phil Clark, director of education and employment, Episcopal Community Services
Because many residents in the Central Market/Tenderloin neighborhood have limited access to kitchen facilities, easily storing, preparing, or cooking fresh produce or meat is a daily struggle. The limited access to a kitchen often reduces eating options to fast food outlets or processed food from a corner store. This has a real impact on the livelihood of Central Market residents:
- An average life expectancy of 20 years lower than that of other San Francisco neighborhoods
- The highest rate of preventable emergency room visits in San Francisco
- The highest rate of hospitalization due to congestive heart failure
- Five times the citywide average for hospitalization due to uncontrolled diabetes
- The second-highest ratio of fast food/convenience stores per produce outlet
As the sponsor of ImproveSF's second challenge question, Zendesk and sf.citi believe this panel can spark the debate necessary to help solve this longtime food justice issue.
