PG&E, A. Philip Randolph Institute and The San Francisco Housing Authority Team Up To Fight Hunger During The Holidays

Fourth Annual Turkey Giveaway Slated for Bayview-Hunter’s Point Community, Tuesday, November 23rd, from 11AM - 3:30PM (See the 94124 Community Calendar for times and locations).

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will partner with the A. Philip Randolph Institute (APRI) and San Francisco Housing Authority to give away more than 700 turkey baskets, with a complete Thanksgiving meal, at Hunter’s View, Hunter’s Point and Alice Griffith housing developments in the Bayview- Hunter’s Point community.

Each turkey basket will contain a 10-12 pound turkey; two loaves of bread; a three-pound bag of rice; one can of cranberry sauce; and two cans each of corn, greens, mixed vegetables and yams.

The project is part of PG&E’s commitment to the Bayview-Hunter’s Point community where PG&E is cleaning up the site of the former Hunter’s Point Power Plant.

Volunteers distributing turkey baskets to residents of the Bayview-Hunter’s Point community. Representatives from PG&E, APRI and the Housing Authority will be on hand for interviews, as will residents of the community.

In San Francisco, more than 150,000 people live at or below 150% of the federal poverty level and are in need of food. Need is especially high during the holidays.

This year, the San Francisco Food Bank is on track to distribute 41.5 million pounds of food to meet an ever-growing need in the San Francisco community. As unemployment continues to soar, need is especially high during the holiday season. PG&E, APRI and the San Francisco Housing Authority are teaming up once again to help fill the need.

Joe Molica, PG&E Media Relations Department (415) 973-5930.
