Communities such as San Francisco’s Mission District often center on food—it’s part of the fabric of the neighborhood and the economy. But what has happened to food culture and business as the neighborhood and the city at large grows and shifts? Join the chefs/co-owners of long-time beloved Mission District restaurant Foreign Cinema, along with other local community leaders, for a conversation about the past, present and future of the vibrant neighborhood and city they work, cook and eat in every day.

Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Taube Family Auditorium, San Francisco
