The events are held approximately every month from March to October. By closing streets and inviting in merchants, live music, food trucks and kids’ activities, Sunday Streets seeks to transform normally traffic-heavy corridors into community spaces for everyone to enjoy.
“On the eve of our 10 year anniversary, we’ve put a lot of thought into the foundations and future of the program,” said Katy Birnbaum, Sunday Streets Program Director. “We’re more committed than ever to deepening our partnerships and ensuring San Francisco’s diverse communities have a real stake in what Sunday Streets looks like and means in each neighborhood.”
To expand upon its programs, Sunday Streets was recently awarded an Invest in Neighborhoods grant from the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development for the organization’s ongoing investment in building stronger local communities.
Longstanding city partners include the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, the Department of Public Health, The Department of Public Works, and Parks and Recreation, all who believe in the mission to bring opportunities for healthy eating, active living, sustainable transportation, and local economic development to San Francisco in underserved neighborhoods.
“We see Sunday Streets as a critical component to improve health outcomes citywide by promoting healthy eating and active living,” says San Francisco Director of Health, Barbara Garcia.
