the next slide shows you the responses to this problem and this is a map of where existing foods pantries are located and the food pantries are run write the marin food bank the bigger dots is the bigger pantries they're located throughout the city now the next slide is showing you the red dots that where the pantries are in the neighborhoods there's more demands for those food pantries than ability to meet the demands for a moment in san francisco we have a 200 food pantries serving one hundred thousand residents every week. >> as we said food is very linked to health we know that proper nutrition is essential for good health as the top leading causes of death poor
10:01 pm
nutrition is a risk and it results in mental and physical and emotional health problems food u.n. security increases the person's risk factor for chronic disease like high blood pressure and obese it overseeing costs are passed on to other city agencies the school district and the private sector especially the health factor as a reminder food security is complex and achieving food security will involve the complex network of the public and private folks the framework for the task force to look at this issue adopted from the world height and the world security and people need resources to purchase food they
10:02 pm
need food assess and place they can get to get healthy food the food consumption does the person have the ability to cook and the nutrition this is the collection network that make ups the facts and circumstances that will approve the security again as a reminder of the work we've down together observe the past couple of years the resolution to end hunger in 2013 and the mayor and board of supervisors have valeted additional funding to solve this problem without further ado, we'll give you an update on the victories and what is the next and my colleagues from the human services agency give you and just want on calfresh. >> i'm here to talk about calfresh and this food stamps in terms of getting folks on
10:03 pm
benefits currently 54 thousand are referring calfresh that means 200 and $27 a month towards food fortunately that demand is half so a significant goal of the human services agency to have a comprehensive effort to try to get more people on benefits and the strategies to do that one is to meet applicants where rewhere they are in the neighborhoods community-based organizations that are served and reaching them on the telephone so with the help of the resources two years ago we have a established 8 out station throughout the city those are places we staff human services agency eligibility workers and applicants apply for calfresh and do the interview and prosecutes for the benefits we have this for example, at the
10:04 pm
naeth at the departments of brags and thought chinatown san francisco general we help calfresh with the marin food bank those are events a number of communities and community-based organizations help with foods eligible candidates and eligible workers to go out and help to process those applications on the spot and this the reason we've embarked on in reach we mean reaching out to families that are all right. open a caseload of other services eligible for calfresh and not getting it for example, anticipated or stemmed about half of the families on medi-cal's are likely eligible for calfresh awhile only a small portion 18 percent are actually getting that with the help of
10:05 pm
the large network of the cbo coalition the marin with the human services agency over the past year the cbo has submitted and approved 17 hundred applications generating approximately $8.8 million unanimously this is a graphic giving you a sense the population for the medi-cal i've referenced if you see the large yellow and green this is the medi-cal approximately, one and 25 thousand households ref medi-cal in the city approximately half are, however, only a portion are referring calfresh so the encourage cycle it is orange and pink the caseload the offer laptop it 2 $3,000 and more thousands are likely eligible for calfresh and to try to address that we've
10:06 pm
hired and vendor that is engaged in an out bound calling to help with the assistance on the phone so what are our next steps in terms of the finding the applicants we'll continue to expand in reach and outreach one now in reach strategy we'll launch in the fall similar out bound campaign to children for those who have an interest in calfresh and to provide them with phone assistance we hope to open a satellite office in the mission in san francisco currently wisconsin we have a human services agency site where people can drop off calfresh applications and get limit services we hope to make it a more comprehensive location people can get the range of
10:07 pm
calfresh and hope focus on the staff resources to have quick processes for applications that is done with the help of more clerical staff next helping them complete a cumbersome application to apply for calfresh you have to complete a form online over and over on paper and conduct an interview of 45 minutes or an hour and submit the documents this can be hard for protecting folks often people that don't have phones and live on the streets and for anyone that didn't have time to wait in the office and stressed out by the steps involved we're proud of at the human services agency over the past two years we deliver the same day service and even more the clients come in from calfresh is seen within 10
10:08 pm
minutes two years ago we could be wasting up to 4 hours or the next day service we also with the help of the cbos with the food bank helped clients reminding them of their requirements to submit and reminding them on interviews they're not just helping them with the initial application but the next steps so here's the new initiate we've hoped to launch something we call on demand interviews i mean right now an applicant applies online they submit their application and we contact them for their interview if they don't answer the phone there is a list that goes back and forth and missed interview is one of the primary reasons people don't get approved we hope this is something that an individual can call and apply for calfresh and get interviewed
10:09 pm
on the spot by the person that answers the phone we don't currently have the resources to do that and next won our on calfresh the goal to help you stay on calfresh if your financing eligible the extensive paperwork to keep you on aid we find that 20 percent of the caseload is disconnected and reapplied within the same thirty days because their financing successful we're piloting the automatic interviews by texts and e-mails the missing the intrifs radio the reason they're not getting the support the state is responsible for sending letters to the caseload to talk about the requirements and expectation when they have to do onramp interview and submit
10:10 pm
paperwork even people about high education levels to understand so the state will help them be more understandable more people understand what we need to do and tells you their requirements on the next step additional out bound call campaign for people that are disconnected from aid who are still financially eligible we appreciate the help you've given for the support and pleased the support will continue to help family services linda allow. >> amazing work thank you for the recommendations moving forward. >> good morning board of supervisors. >> i'm linda i am the lead nuflt with the aging & adult

list looks like by supervisor district some of the districts actually all the district are wait list it's not surprising tenderloin and south of market has the highest wait list even though the services to that is high the age is 76 years old how are we are doing to achieve the hunger for people on the wait list this is a projection the green bar shows you serving over 5 thousand interpretative clients and another 4 thousand plus are in advance we've seen based studies and analysis in order to reduce the service net need if we're serving 25 percent of this this is about 12 hundred 43 people every year that will
10:16 pm
take $4 million and in four years an additional $16 million added to the program so by 2020 if we have $24 million we meet the unmet need this is, of course, not including other projected growth and we'll set that coming up in the coming years so - >> this is a snapshot of what the status we'll be able to do with the covered meal program it is severing people that do ambulatory their participate in under activities that help to keep them healthy and engaged besides receiving a nutritious meal we're grateful in the last two years with the mayors and the brvrsdz adam one $.8 million to this program and we were able to add 6 new sites two of them

10:26 pm
to make it today. >> the rest of the presentation this part of presentation will be reporting back on the results of a survey that the task force accident from the sro residents to understand the security status karen lead the project and wishes she could be here i'll represent the project i'd like to thank yorba brown it uc berkley that provided the pro bono assistance the as you may know over 5 hundreds sro residents in san francisco or sro hotels in san francisco with about 19 thousand plus residential unit many are old and share bathrooms and - residents are among the most vulnerable and low income in san
10:27 pm
francisco and reliant on government income and cash benefits for their health and well-being with the passing of the hunger free the board asked the task force to come back with straents to improve the status so we surveyed sro residents the majority were single adults and first, we want to first of all, understand the level of food insecurity those residents and understand the reflex which is really another way to see who up formal nutrition and see what the city can do we served nine hundred residents and exceeded this goal 6 hundred and 30 plus residents we used valeted screening tools to assess the insecurity and understand the
10:28 pm
risk we found that over 80 percent were food insecure and at risk for high mall nutrition we looked at things like that dos used 43ers of residents take 3 or more prescription drugs arrest over-the-counter drugs almost half have gains or lost 10 pounds and mouth problems that made it difficult to eat this is a various group is in high need for nutrition we thought and wondered the sro residents are using the existing food program the answer is yes as you can see from this slide 85 percent total are using the food safety net one time a week
10:29 pm
and many are using other kinds of free programs everyday so we concluded the current safety net is robust not enough to tend ends food insecurity and protect the health we wonder what role the kitchens might play we asked them question and a full set of the responses to all the data will be in our packet you received and available we have a report on the slides that tell that analyze the data we found out that tenants will cook at home with better kitchens i ask you to look at the report we want to know what is the top priority for residents of skoerz e.r. sros and the top priority
10:30 pm
was additional funds to purchase better food many residents are getting ssi benefits so their ineligibility in light state of california from the other priorities that are these railroad many other food programs from a full pantry to low income the programs available they rated 50 percent said they were high priority so what we found is really it although the safety net a utility did absent of kitchens is a barrier to food security but lack of financial issues and other barriers are amongst the residents and additional funds is a highly desirable this will
10:31 pm
not be the only answer many sro residents may not be able to get out and dine all intervention will play a role the task force recommend that we had figure out the right package of interventions by the collection of intervention in sro building the task force recommends this for two reasons approval we have people living in the snapshot in sro buildings and mr. sincroy came over of food their insecure and people with disabilities and people living in extremely poverty and critical health issues and second trying new interventions we can identify gaps in the current safety net and development solutions and connect the social services and
10:32 pm
understand how improvements can contribute to food security for the next steps the task force recommends setting aside specific funds to pilot funds in two or three building with the revenue process that gives details by the type of intervention and those eligible and those remedies were informed by 3 public meetings fr stakeholders thank you for your leadership and with that, i'd like to ask you are chair to provide the final recommendations. >> thank you supervisor mar for sponsoring this hearing and supervisors today part of committee supervisor farrell i want to point out one thing before i make the recommends in
10:33 pm
your packet an update on the out of school meals a fuller report in june we've made progress but the reports will be up in the next couple of months moving on to recommends as you've heard we've made significant process of security and a hunger free san francisco by 2020 by more to do i'd like to talk about 3 things first budgeted we need to maintain and expand the nutrition program over the next fiscal and reach you are goals you have a detailed budget totally over $13 million we've shown this program works and make that a further dent in the coming year that have we'll be walking and visiting our offices to meet with you to talk about the
10:34 pm
details and look forward to doing that i'd like to directing your attention to addressing the divorce population need we believe the time is right to pilot initiative and collaborative solutions to address the needs of this vulnerable population we urge you to consider that and second policy at the local level you've heard today we're doing a better job of intraoral more and more seniors in the meals on wheels but people wait two along it is still 44 days for anyone that is home bounds with little access to food we ask you to mandate a policy for the home delivery service in 2 to 5 days in an emergency sidewalks we urge to promote a food security gene in all city programs to create a population asset that will give us a fuller stent of what the
10:35 pm
level of food and security in a city however, there are things the state can do not all on the city i urge to support ab 144 that is making its way introduce the legislation that is ssi for the recipients we noted this population is forced to timely below the poverty level and no access to calfresh and legislation to rectify this and put in place a cost of living investment to people can be sure to have the increases over time finally raven this is a task force that is proud of work we've done to assess the needs of our at risk population in san francisco but in order to reach the goal by 2020 we need to look
10:36 pm
deeper at the full spectrum of the cost of food and security in san francisco both to residents and you are health care institutions we need to put a finer point on the cost eliminating food and insecurity as well as identify the opportunities to take advantage of stable and ongoing funding to support those investment like we might find through the hsa and food is a large part and finally developing shared outcomes and measures so we can agree upon what we are looking to achieve and what it looks like to are a secure food place for people that are thriving and engaged with the budget analyst office to exposure those questions and looking forward to extinguisher on that with that, i'd like to
10:37 pm
close and invite questions. >> start by thanking you and ann and the foot task force in the tenderloin task force as well i had a question how much is since this is at budget committee how to make the policy to make sure that home delivery meals in the morning that 2 to 5 days what's the range of that. >> well, we've said in the last two years we've focused on this population is that about a million to million half dollars on the wait list by spoke to this earlier every time is clears it comes up we need a finer point to maintain it a blow thirty days ongoing. >> and i think from the presentation on e d sf i realize your healthy it is critical and
10:38 pm
so continuing the funding to trofrment from selling junk food and cigarettes to inhabitanter beverages and food and assessable and affordable food it is critical are wanted to say i think the food system approach that paula jones and others talked about is changing the system as the founder of first said 40 years ago and said the system needs to change i'm realizing that education niece to change whether it is more assess but the education about what is healthy and whether for children and families versus seniors and aging people as well so besides the systems change it is culture and other changes from the faefrmz having access to e d sf i want to give a shout out to the food guardians and
10:39 pm
people on the tenderloin leaders for commissioner tang that culture and raising that awareness for people impacted so we have better cultural and educational changes so thanks for the great work. >> 20 public comment cards classroom i'll ask people to keep it as short as possible and some need to leave early (calling names) and i'm calling names for people to come forward. >> so professor. >> thank you supervisor mar and thank you especially for all you've done over the years with
10:40 pm
the task force, with your support of healthy retail and amending the liveable wage you've been a leader i'm here as you said partly as a health research and a san francisco native and a proud member of the coalition because despite the efforts of task force and all the amazing groups and ceo's and organizations that have worked on that as you have heard food source security a huge problem i'm sorry tammy had to leave another justice levied in the tenderloin they have the best ability to turn the statistics into the face and the people behind them we're aware of the homelessness in the city but we
10:41 pm
forget i think some of the speakers pointed out when you live in a city that is as expensive as san francisco over 80 percent of people that are taking advantage of your food banks are working families with low wage they're seniors and, of course, children so hunger is a kind of silent and invisible contributor to talk about the serious health conditions in the city and state and country but misunderstood with two-thirds of the adults overweight or obese oh, they're just leases and eating this stuff because they like is that overeating is not a choice they're eating high calories because of their source of
10:42 pm
energy in bayview hunters point so one in 4 meals is healthy food. >> professor we're keeping this to 2 minutes please wrap up. >> i'll move quickly i want to say i totally port all of the recommendations that we've heard this morning i want to add two of them to putting a high priority on healthy retail government contribution through the office of economic workforce development and 60 thousand a year we've been able to bring in grants to support that but they're short lived the one the biggest one is going to be done after 2017. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> next speaker >> good afternoon, supervisors my name is jane and thank you, very much for letting me speak i

10:45 pm
social and economic description of the built to afford and maintain healthy food and healthy eating and you know hunger can be addressed by the provision of a free meal but food and security is a broader thing that needs to be addresses as economic justice, as well as food justice and so we've heard a lot about how health is related to food security and housing status is related to food security and the ability to be able to prepare food at home that is something that isn't a possibility for the people living in the 19 thousand sros this is a bigger discussion than simply food and a larger discussion of economic justice and basically, the budget apps
10:46 pm
for the to come to our office on the third in the first place of june and ask for this money for the programs we know work will be a great achievement in getting economic justice. >> thank you rebecca i'll call more names (calling names) sir. >> thank you hello supervisors my name is ryan a community organizer with tndc and the coordinator of the healthy store coalition we work with a number of folks danny and

10:48 pm

>> a lot a ton with the community and we say to ourselves, there is this one and this one. we all compartmentalize them, we have our own agenda. our agenda is to create great work. if you are interested in that, you are part of our community. >> hello and welcome to brava theater.
11:43 pm
>> we are trying to figure out a way to make a space where theater and presentation of live work is something that you think of the same way that you think of going to the movies. of course, it has been complex in terms of economics, as it is for everyone now. artistically, we have done over 35 projects in four seasons, from producing dance, theater, presenting music, having a full- scale education program, and having more than 50,000 visitors in the building almost every year. a lot of our emerging artists to generate their first projects here, which is great. then we continue to try to support figuring out where those works can go. we have been blessed to have that work produced in new york, going on to the edinburgh festival, the warsaw theater festival.
11:44 pm
to me, those are great things when you can watch artists who think there is nowhere else that might be interested in you being a woman of color and telling your story and then getting excited about it. that is our biggest accomplishment. having artists have become better artists. what is. sheri coming back to brava, here you have this establish, amazing writer who has won a clue -- slew of awards. now she gets to director and work. even though she is this amazing, established writer, the truth is, she is being nurtured as a director and is being given some space to direct. >> the play is described as ceremony and -- where ceremony and theater me. in the indigenous tradition, when you turn 52, it is like the
11:45 pm
completion of an important era. the importance of the ceremony is to say, you are 52. whenever you have been caring for the first 52 years, it is time to let it go. really, here, they have given me carte blanche to do this. i think it is nice for me, in the sense of coming back 25 years later and seeing personally my own evolution as an artist and thinker. the whole effort to put the chicano or indigenous woman's experience on center stage is, in itself, for euro-american theaters, a radical position. because of the state of theater, it is a hard roll to hold up in institution. it is a hard road. i am looking at where we are 25 years later in the bay area,
11:46 pm
looking at how hard it is for us to strive to keep our theater is going, etc. i like to think that i'm not struggling quite as hard, personally, but what i mean by that, the intention, the commitment. particularly, to produce works that would not be produced in other places, and also to really nurture women of color artists. i think that is something that has not shifted for me in those 25 years, and it is good to see that brava remains committed to that kind of work. ♪ >> when people talk about the reflection of the community, we can only go from what we have on our staff. we have a south asian managing director, south african artistic
11:47 pm
director, latino community out rich person. aside from the staff, the other people, artists that we work with being a reflection of us, yes, the community is changing, but brava has always tried to be ahead of that trend. when i came in, i tried to make it about the work that shows the eclectic mission district, as well as serving the mission. those are the types of things that i feel build one brava is >> >> good evening and welcome. >> san francisco planning commission regular hearing for commission regular hearing for thursday, march 17, 2016, any kind. proceedings. and when speaking before the commission, if you care to, do state your name for the record. i'd like to call roll at this time.

11:56 pm
on setting the mba recording i'd like to ask the staff about we had a hearing last week on pdr and i - there's a series of e-mails back and forth through the eastern neighborhoods process i think that is helpful to have a brief permission if staff showing maps that delineate the square footage that is retired for only pdr and where it is on the map and also the square footage delineated from pdr to which is not the core pdr but less intense that surrounds the area where the core pdr is and also realizing that before that was one m now, one that protects it and basically talk about the where the umu anticipated loss of pdrs
11:57 pm
will take place and how much square footage has been taken out of pdr and how much is anticipated and how much could possibly happen and is it still worst the limits we've assigned we have a total amount that he anticipate to be converted if pdr to other uses that would be great to have this established and make it easier when we have discussions we have delineation as to what areas are anticipated to conversion to office space where pdr will be allowed and not allowed and be easier for the commission i think thank you. >> commissioners seeing nothing further director's announcements. >> thank you jonas actually,
11:58 pm
my in the amount of was related to commissioner antonini's contempt we'll be happy to do the report we have calendared on june if the eastern neighborhoods monitoring report that staff is working on i object to make that part of report and also referenced to a recent e-mail i made this comment to some of the folks in the mission district that were working i would be happy to have a discussion about the potential changes to the zoning if we need to tweak the rezoning with respect to pdr uses it is time to do that and i object to talk about those changes need to be with respect to pdr uses within the umu zone that concludes my remarks. >> past events at the board of supervisors there was no historic preservation commission hearing yesterday
