Dear All,

Thank you so much for signing up to participate in this year's Supermarket Street Sweep! The many families in need in the Bay Area, as well as the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks, will appreciate the food you'll be donating on Saturday.

The start of the race is at Cupid Span's sculpture (Bow & Arrow) at Embarcadero & Folsom. 

We'll start checking you in at 10:45AM. You'll receive a spoke card, manifest (which details your shopping route and list), stickers and a water bottle. Ideally we'll get all of you on the road by noon! If it's raining, feel free to bring a small bag of clothing / towel that we can drop off at the after party spot for you. You'll be able to change there. 

The end of the race is at 4PM sharp at the San Francisco Food Bank (900 Pennsylvania Avenue). If you arrive after 4PM, we'll have to disqualify you, so be on time! The Food Bank also officially closes at 4PM, so you'll have to enter / exit out of the small side gate after that. 

The after party location is nearby at rideSFO / Sandbox, 132 Missouri Street. You can have (2) free beers from 21st Amendment; just show your spoke card and our volunteer will mark it each time. After that, beers are $1/each with proceeds going to the SF & Marin Food Banks. There will also be some free soft drinks and bottles of water, first come, first serve. An El Tonayense taco truck will be on site from 4-6PM (and can hang around longer if folks are still eating.) Tacos will be $1.75, burritos are $7. 

Lastly, if you bring back extra food, you'll be entered into our raffle. 

Any questions? Email us at supermarketstreetsweep@gmail.com. Thanks for being a badass and braving the elements to help a great cause. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Have fun and good luck,

The Supermarket Street Sweep Team
