- WANTED MEETING HALL with Kitchen for SFVS POTLUCKS
> SFVS members have been asking if we could start up our San Francisco
> potlucks and speaker series again. For years, thanks to Nancy
> Loewen, we were able to use the Institute on Aging (IOA) offices on
> Geary and Cook St. Then in March 2011, the IOA moved across the
> street, where they built huge new offices and medical health
> facilities for the seniors they serve. Next door is low-income,
> senior housing managed by Bridge Housing.
> We've asked both IOA and Bridge if we can use their community space
> for our potluck & speaker events, but they say no. We've looked into
> churches, community centers, but they either don't allow food
> (meeting space only), or their rental rates are exorbitantly
> expensive (like $200+). We have used Fort Mason for our Holiday
> Potlucks but they are expensive ($175 for 4 hours which we don't
> make up at the door, no kitchen facility, & there is a fee for
> parking in the lot). We have used UU Church for our MEAT OUT LUNCH
> but we have to be co-sponsored with UU Animal Ministry and it is
> still around $200.00. We have used St James Church but they won't
> book every month and they double booked us last time and we had to
> start one hour late. We have Thanksgiving Potlucks at SDA Church
> but their church sabbath is Saturday and they have a potluck
> following their service every week. Although we use the Police
> Community Room on Valencia for our Annual Meeting & WVF Orientation
> Meeting, it is too small of a space for ongoing potlucks.
> Do any of you know an organization, community group, or church that
> has rental space for us? We would need a space that could hold
> 50-75 people, has a dining area with tables and chairs and a
> kitchen. We can pay $50-100 for rental. In addition, as many of our
> members use public transit, it would be helpful if there was a bus
> line close by. Something along the 38 Geary, 1 California or a BART
> line would be great. We're looking for a Saturday night once a
> month, from 5:00-10:00pm. If you miss the potlucks and want them
> back, would you please help us find a space so we can do it again?
> Thanks so much!
