What is Manny’s?
Manny’s is a people powered and community focused meeting and learning place in the heart of San Francisco that combines a restaurant, political bookshop, and civic events space.
The goal of Manny’s is to create a central and affordable place to become a better informed and more involved citizen.
We offer our events space to nonprofits, activists, and civic organizations to do their work as well as host our own civic and arts related programming. Our kitchen is run by the non-profit, Farming Hope, which hires formerly homeless and formerly incarcerated individuals and trains them in the food skills needed to work in the restaurant industry.
What’s Our Commitment to the Community?
Manny’s is a community space and is proudly located in the Mission District – a historic hub of activism and progressive action. Recent years have seen the closure of the many incredible civic gathering and organizing spaces within San Francisco and especially the Mission District as rents and the costs of living has increased steadily.
Manny’s is committed to:
-Local Sourcing, Art, and Hiring
In order to walk the walk with our commitments, Manny’s worked with a coalition of Mission based advocacy groups called United to Save the Mission to create a set of agreed upon commitments to the community that can be found here.
