SAN FRANCISCO — The Nichi Bei Foundation will present the ninth annual Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival on Saturday, June 29, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Event Center at Saint Mary’s Cathedral, 1111 Gough St. (at Geary Boulevard) near San Francisco’s Japantown.

The mission of the Soy and Tofu Festival is to educate the public about the health benefits and various uses of soy and tofu. In adhering to these goals, the annual fundraiser for the Nichi Bei Foundation strives to be a vehicle for community-building and leadership development while adhering to the foundation’s mission of keeping the community connected, informed and empowered.

This culinary and cultural event showcases soy and tofu vendors, provides an educational forum on the various uses and benefits of soy and tofu, offers live music and cultural entertainment, interactive games and tofu eating contests, and culminates with the Soy and Tofu Dessert Competition.

Proceeds from the festival help to publish the first nonprofit ethnic community newspaper of its kind in the country, the Nichi Bei Weekly.
