Edible San Francisco | The Last Black Woman in San Francisco Wants Everyone To Eat Well

August 4, 2019

Rachel Bolden-Kramer grew up in San Francisco, the single child of working-class parents, was raised in the Upper Haight in the 1980s and 90s.  Her dad, who has roots in the American South, was a driver; her Jewish mom worked for the phone company.  Today, she is literally a poster child for San Francisco, as she is featured as one of 15 portraits on permanent display at the Ferry Building as part of CUESA’s Food Change public art mural installation that celebrates farmers, advocates, and residents who are working to improve the region’s food systems. 

She spoke to reporter/writer Sarah Henry for this profile piece for Edible San Francisco, in which she speaks positively about the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank.
