The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS/The Aesthetic Society) is hosting its Experienced Insights: Breast and Body Contouring meeting in San Francisco this week from October 18 through October 20 at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins hotel in San Francisco. The Aesthetic Society partnered with the InterContinental Mark Hopkins to donate much-needed food in the form of boxed lunches to the substantial homeless population in the city with Food Runners, a non-profit organization devoted to alleviating hunger and preventing waste.
The current homeless population in San Francisco is estimated to be 7,500 individuals as of 2017, all located within an approximate 49-mile radius. San Francisco has a higher percentage of chronically homeless people than in comparable cities. Many of the homeless need mental healthcare and addiction treatment, which the city is working to address with expanded programs. Still, there is a daily and desperate need for food donations for the homeless population as well.
