Please join Carleton College alumni, prospective students, current students, and families for a community-service day at the San Francisco Food Bank followed by a pizza party at Goat Hill Pizza in the Potrero Hill District of the City by the Bay.  At the Food Bank, we will be cleaning, sorting, and packaging various food items for needy San Franciscans.  During our Goat Hill Pizza sojourn, we will be sharing stories with each other in a spirit of good cheer.

Since this is always an extremely popular event, please be advised that the 60 available slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  When you RSVP, please note how many people will be in your party (age 14 and older), and please identify yourself as either an alum, parent, prospective student, or current student.

Please wear casual/grubby clothing with comfortable (no open-toed) shoes.

Thank you very much; it is going to be great to see you at this wonderful event!
