Back by popular demand, Civil Eats is hosting its second annual celebration to support our work on Monday, November 13 in San Francisco. This year, we will be at a fantastic new event venue, The Pearl, in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood. General Admission includes tasting creations prepared by more than a dozen of the Bay Area's best restaurants from the bounty of our foodshed. In addition, VIP tickets include all beer and wine. A full bar will be available with all drinks available for purchase. New for 2017: We will have an array of exciting and exclusive auction packages available to bid on to further support Civil Eats' mission!
We are thrilled to bring our community together again to celebrate the vital work of our writers and editors, and showcase their important stories. Civil Eats’ advisory board members Chef Alice Waters and Ricardo Salvador and many other food movement movers and shakers will be in attendance. We are grateful for the incredible outpouring of support from some of the Bay Area's best farmers, producers, and chefs, including:
Alta CA | Alter Eco Chocolate | Bi-Rite Market | Brown Sugar Kitchen | Chef David Tu | Community Grains | Cowgirl Creamery | The Drawing Board | June Taylor Jams | Left Coast GrassFed | Llano Seco | Lundberg Family Farms | Magpie | Miyoko's Kitchen | Namu Gaji | Nopalito | Oliveto | The Perennial | Piccino | Pie Ranch | SHED | Siren Fish Company | STEM | Straus Family Creamery | Tartine | Veritable Vegetable
Since 2009, our tiny team of writers and editors has worked hard to bring a diverse array of perspectives to the forefront while shining a light on the food system stories that matter most. We're honored by the recognition and awards our work has received, and we can do even more with your support.
Civil Eats is a non-profit, independent news and commentary site. We’ve never taken advertising and rely on subscriptions, donations, and grants to pay our writers and editors. Every part of this event is donated and offered on discount, including the generosity of our host location and our all-volunteer event team. The chefs will be donating their time using ingredients provided by many generous local and organic producers.
Please join us to help fund our award-winning reporting. In a media landscape that often rewards entertainment over critical thinking, we count on your support to help us continue to do the work we do. If you aren't able to attend in person, please consider making a donation via the eventbrite link. The Civil Eats team thanks you!

PRAISE FROM LAST YEAR'S CELEBRATION
“If you can only attend one event this fall season, the Civil Eats Celebration better be the one. There will be delicious food from SF’s top chefs, stimulating conversations with extraordinary change makers, and you'll be supporting one of the most important organizations fighting for better food, a healthier planet, and a more just society. And best of all, you'll have lots of fun!” ~ SAM MOGANNAM, founder, Bi-Rite Family of Businesses
