“Great Plates Delivered has two purposes:

  2. Provide essential economic stimulus to local businesses struggling to stay afloat during the COVID-19 crisis.”

Is Golden Gate Park really for all San Franciscans? — SF Examiner

“It can around an hour to travel from Third Street, Bayview’s central commercial corridor, to the Rose Garden on JFK Drive, on the 44 O’Shaugnessy bus. According to GoogleMaps, weekday itinerary suggestions from other parts of the neighborhood can require multiple transfers, some of which include the 15-Bayview Hunters Point Express, a Muni route launched during the pandemic in response to high demand in the area. When public transit isn’t a reliable or timely option, people turn to cars. That’s exactly what’s happened in the Bayview, where almost half of all households own two or more cars, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency Community-Based Transportation Plan.”
