State Bird, Frances, Nopa, Bi-Rite, More Offering Holiday Gift Certificates For Food Bank

After a successful one-day blowout at the SFMOMA in May, Anthony Myint of Commonwealth and Mission Chinese Food is upping the ante with, his charitable gift-certificate program, just in time for the holidays. For the entire holiday season, diners will be able to purchase $50 gift certificates to a serious swath of the Eater 38 (including Frances, Rich Table, State Bird Provisions, Nopa, Aziza, Cotogna, Coi, and many more) and give in return, with $5 from each purchase providing a meal for a hungry person through the SF Food Bank. It's part of Myint's larger commitment to the Food Bank, which receives a portion of profits at both of his restaurants. (Want to know more about what it's like to live on food stamps and Food Bank donations? SF Weekly critic Anna Roth tried it for a week, and found the experience more than a little challenging.)

Even those who can't deal with the planning portion of dining out have a solid dining-in option: both the Mission and Divisadero locations of Bi-Rite are among the participants, meaning that a little pre-planning can add a charitable component to your next grocery store trip. (Thanksgiving shopping, anyone?)

Here's the full list of places offering the deal:

Bar Agricole
Bi-Rite Creamery
Bi-Rite Market (Divisadero)
Bi-Rite Market (Mission)
Foreign Cinema
Humphry Slocombe
Ichi Sushi
Mission Chinese
Namu Gaji
Rich Table
State Bird Provisions
