The cornerstone of the TLHCSC is the empowerment of youth and resident leaders to advocate around food justice issues for the community in which they live.

TLHCSC is located in San Francisco's Tenderloin District, and supports activities by Tenderloin residents that increase access and availability to fresh healthy food. We support convenience store conversions to grocery stores through special grants and expert consultation. We have dedicated coalition members and sponsors working to find solutions that benefit residents and businesses. Since 2012, TLHCSC has supported communication and collaborations among community members to build a healthier Tenderloin.
