SF Chronicle Fifth & Mission Podcast: April 16, 2020
The making of a new holiday classic.
The guests in St. Anthony’s Dining Room inspire us daily. Faced with struggles, they display resiliency and versatility.
In that same spirit, we share this recipe — and the story behind it. Our chefs were preparing mashed potatoes one day, when they ran out of milk. Searching the pantry for a suitable substitute, they were delighted to discover gallons of donated eggnog that they immediately put to good use.
The joy of the holidays comes from being together. Around your dining room table and ours, people sit side-by-side to share warm, comforting dishes like this one — lifting the spirits of all.
San Francisco Fleet Week in October celebrated the Bay Area naval tradition and honored the women and men serving in our armed forces.
St. Anthony’s was honored to host service members for a special day of Fleet Week volunteering again this year, continuing an annual tradition. Fleet Week’s 2018 day of service began with our Justice Education orientation, which highlights the history and characteristics of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood as well as the homeless, low-income, and vulnerable populations that St. Anthony’s programs serve. After the presentation concluded, the Fleet Week volunteers made their way to our Dining Room and Free Clothing Program to begin their volunteering shifts.
