#Coworking for Food Drive!

Posted on 16. Nov, 2011 by in blog, Events, Local News, San Jose, SOMA

As the holidays quickly approach, so does the season for generosity.  In the spirit of giving back to the community, Citizen Space has launched a food drive to benefit San Francisco Food Bank, a community non-profit dedicated to feeding the hungry.

San Francisco Food Bank

Citizen Space is launching a food drive to benefit San Francisco Food Bank

Hunger manifests itself as a consistent lack of enough food to meet nutritional requirements. It can mean fewer meals each day and poor-quality food that is calorie-rich but nutrient-poor.

In San Francisco, 197,000 people struggle each day to feed themselves and their families. In Marin, just over 40,000 people – or 16% of the population – face the threat of hunger on a given day.

Citizen Space will be collecting canned food goods at our SF  & San Jose locations from now through the end of the year.  To reward all for participating in the food drive, we are offering 50% off of or regular drop-in rate for every person who donates five or more canned food items for the drive!

Citizen Space is also reaching out to other coworking establishments in San Francisco to build an all-star community of donors, with hopes of feeding more hungry people this holiday season.  Interested in contributing? E-mail Matt to join our team!

Giving back to the community with a round of  #coworking, on us: doesn’t get much better! Check out our team’s page today: http://holidaydrive.sffoodbank.org/team/8045388066

Citizen Space is the world’s first coworking space located at 425 2nd Street, in the SoMa district of San Francisco.  The idea of Citizen Space is to take the best elements of a coffee shop (social, energetic, creative) and the best elements of a workspace (productive, functional) and combine them to give indie workers the chance to have their own, affordable space. Citizen Space was built on coworking philosophy. Our residents (past and present) range from: software engineers, web developers, social media consultants/strategists, graphic designers, product designers, public relations specialists, and sustainable web hosting entrepreneurs.
