Thanks for watching during the Telethon! You can still give to help save San Francisco Chinatown

Thank you for joining us for Chinatown CDC's 1st ever Charity Show Telethon on February 27th on Sky Link TV. This program was made possible by a group of artists and local community members. Over $15,000 was raised to benefit Feed + Fuel Chinatown 2.0 (FF2.0). It also brought joy and positive energy for the Year of the Ox to our viewers. The goal of the program is to raise awareness of the critical community needs and how The City and County of San Francisco, Human Services Agency, District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin and Chinatown CDC are responding to raise resources to save Chinatown.

Since the launch of FF2.0 on January 18 together with San Francisco New Deal, we have signed up 49 Chinatown restaurants, and have enrolled 3,000 SRO residents to receive one prepared meal per day. By next week, we hope to have signed up to 54 restaurants and enrolled 3,300 SRO residents for this program. FF2.0 is able to support Chinatown-based restaurants as well as Single Room Occupant Hotel residents to go through this unprecedented pandemic.
