The Annual Bay Area Chuseok Festival is back for its 2nd year! While we’re disappointed we can’t welcome you in-person at The Presidio again this year, we’re working hard to present a fun set of Covid-safe activities, including K-Quest featuring “missions” around town. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating culture and community between Sept. 30 and Oct. 11. Visit the Chuseok Festival page for more information and please stay tuned as we add programming in the coming weeks.

Meet Sunny Im-Wang, one of KCI’s dedicated volunteers! We are grateful for her commitment and generous contributions of time and talent!

Also, check out our conversation with the owner of  SAMS American Eatery, a 14-year old restaurant in San Francisco that partnered in the Senior Banchan Delivery Program.

      * Social Services/Senior Programs Coordinator

In Our Community

Korean Center, Inc. (KCI) stands in unequivocal solidarity with the Black Community in response to the senseless killing of George Floyd and the many other indiscriminate acts of violence, brutality and injustice against Blacks and other people of color.  Click HERE to read KCI’s statement of solidarity (in Korean and English).

KCI is grateful to the many organizations that have joined hands across the Bay Area to address the COVID-19 pandemic through the Bay Area K-Coalition: KACF-SF, Bay Area K Group (“Meal Forward”), KABANCKACS, KAPS, KCCEB, and Simple Steps.

We applaud the dozens of volunteers who are donating their time and talents to KCI and other organizations during these difficult times.
