Sunday Streets is closing out the season with the last event in the Mission! On Sunday, October 23 from 11a.m. until 4p.m., Valencia and 24th Streets will once again be transformed into a car free space. There will be dancing, roller disco, break dance lessons, and so much more! Dust off your running shoes, your skateboard, or that old bike you haven't used in a while and come play in the streets!

Tell us what you think about Sunday Streets
As we begin planning 2012 Season, we'd like to have your thoughts and input as we move forward. Please take a moment to fill out this brief, 10-question survey.

Sunday Streets is also a Food Day event this year!
The popular Sunday Streets in the Mission happens to fall just at the right time for the first national, annual Food Day this year. Sunday Streets on the 23rd will be a Food Day event! More information on Food Day is at www.FoodDay.org

Tie your plans and activities for Sunday Streets into the six Food Day principles:
  • Reduce diet-related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods
  • Support sustainable farms & limit subsidies to big agribusiness
  • Expand access to food and alleviate hunger
  • Protect the environment & animals by reforming factory farms
  • Promote health by curbing junk-food marketing to kids
  • Support fair conditions for food and farm workers
On or around October 24th, Food Day is basically like an Earth Day for the food movement -- a national day for which any group/org/individual/community can host events, showcase work, launch new projects, push for legislative change, educate people, etc around issues like sustainability, justice, health, and how they intersect. It's grassroots-driven, in that communities and organizations put together the events, projects, editorials, and campaigns they feel would be most beneficial for Food Day.

Ideas include helping kids make art about Food Day or healthy eating, or making music about food justice, or offering dietary-related health screenings.
