“We typically welcome more than 300 guests to our Taste of The Bay event,” mentioned Save The Bay Occasions Supervisor Leanne Danielsen. “This year, not only is the format not feasible due to COVID-19, but many of our local partners are struggling to make ends meet. We needed to take a different approach to the event, and are hopeful that we can connect our partners with the support they need.”
“For years, our Taste of the Bay vendors have helped us raise funds to support our advocacy, habitat restoration, and environmental education work by donating their food and drink to Taste of The Bay,” mentioned Save The Bay Government Director Jonathan Stone. “Now, we have an opportunity to help them.”
