Production Details

A Mission History of Urban Food Production

Discover the northeast Mission's remarkable history of industrial food production. Including the buildings repurposed during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 70s that led to today's organic food abundance. The tour starts at the old American Can Company (today's Project Artaud) and ends at one of the neighborhood's most inspiring pandemic responses: the Mission Food Hub at Alabama and 19th Street.
