Children explore how vegetable superpowers can help the homeless
“In homage to vegetables—compliments for carrots, bravo to broccoli, kudos to kohlrabi—about 120 third- and fourth-graders from Bessie Carmichael Elementary School made their way from their South of Market School to the Koret Auditorium of the San Francisco Public Library and to the nearby Tenderloin Community Garden on Friday, March 23. (…) Onstage next to “Center for the Art of Envisioning Better” signs, the children read stories they wrote about imaginary superpowers they’d acquired by eating vegetables.”
Our food-writing project at Bessie Carmichael School, in collaboration with the Precita Eyes Muralists and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, culminated in a beautiful reading at the SF Public Library, and The San Francisco Chronicle was there to register the event, which you can check it out here.
