Mission Pie is a corner café, bakery, and neighborhood gathering place in the SF Mission District that brings the flavors of local farms into the city and tells their stories. Mission Pie encourages urban folks toward intimacy with their food through live relationships with the people and places that grow our ingredients. With pie as our ally, we create a warm environment that encourages exploration of our choices and values, and where, as neighbors, we can find support and friendship in our pursuit of healthy and sustainable lives. We celebrate farmers, bakers, chefs, and all who work together toward a healthful food system.
Mission Pie is a business venture in collaboration with the non-profit Pie Ranch, a diversified small-scale educational farm that is just one hour south of San Francisco.Through “hands-on work and collective reflection at Pie Ranch, San Francisco teenagers discover new competencies and insights” that truly benefit them as individuals and in community.
Since opening on January 3, 2007, Mission Pie has provided jobs and training for the youth Pie Ranch works with at the farm.
