We San Franciscans are all too familiar with earthquakes. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been following the news about Peru’s 7.9er last week. Recent reports put the death toll at more than 500, with tens of thousands victims left homeless. Tragedies like this often make me feel helpless—what can I do to help people thousands of miles away?

James Schenk, the chef-owner of Destino, is making helping out easy with an urgent campaign. Just have dinner at Destino this week, and he’ll contribute a portion of the sales to assist victims in Peru. Additionally, if dinner’s not in the cards, you can contribute directly through the Consulate General of Peru (1-877-490-7378).
