Event description

PLATE BY PLATE returns to San Francisco on October 21st, 2023!

Plate by Plate is Project by Project’s (PbP) signature Annual Tasting Event and the nation’s oldest and largest Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) volunteer-organized tasting event. Every year, 500+ individuals come together to enjoy the Bay Area’s best food, dessert, and beverage vendors in support of AAPI non-profits. In addition to enjoying delicious bites and libations while mingling with the community, PbP also hosts a silent auction with exciting prizes to be won.

This year, Plate by Plate will be held at Building 12 at Pier 70 in San Francisco. Situated alongside the dynamic and creative Dogpatch neighborhood, the former shipyard warehouse features an open floor plan with high ceilings that combines industrial charm with modern design elements. Join us for another memorable evening featuring top chefs and [40 well-renowned restaurants and beverage vendors] from all over the Bay Area, who will come together and donate their talents to support local Asian American non-profits. We are excited to celebrate our 2023 campaign theme, Education Access, and highlight our beneficiary partner, the Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC)! 

Proceeds from this year’s event will be distributed to Oakland Asian Cultural Center and to help further Project by Project’s mission of developing a pipeline of AAPI leaders through innovative philanthropy.
