Food for Humanity
Haitian Relief at Cheese Plus

Certainly you have heard of the devastating loss from last month’s 7.0 Earthquake in Haiti. More than 80,000 people have died, and as many as 200,000 are feared dead while more than 2 million people are left homeless – that’s as many people as live in San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. As the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with residents living on less than $2 per day, there simply are not enough resources there to keep up with the demands of rescue, recovery and repair. The need for aid remains, and aftershocks continue with a 4.6 quake earlier this week. The devastation is heartbreaking.


Here at Cheese Plus we are offering an opportunity for you to donate to the relief efforts while shopping at the store. We purchased a few cases of fresh California Olive Ranch Arbequina Olive Oil and will donate 100% of the sales to Doctors Without Borders. We estimate about $1000 in relief donations from the sales of the oil, and if you’d like to donate more, let us know and we will scan your bottle of oil as many times as you’d like to make a donation.


Thank you for your support and compassion.
Thanks for subscribing to our email newsletter. And an extra special thanks for supporting independent business in San Francisco! Your support provides sustainability during these changing times, and keeps traditional and authentic food on our tables and in our conversations.

See you in the aisles,
