No San Francisco Grocery Tax

Say “NO” to an unfair grocery tax in San Francisco.


San Francisco costs enough already – now grocery prices could go way up!

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a ballot measure that could raise prices across the board at restaurants and grocery stores in city limits.

San Franciscans are demanding answers!

The fact is we have higher priorities for City government than the regulation of our food and beverage choices with new taxes. Before we are forced to pay more at the checkout counter, we deserve some kind of guarantee that those dollars will be spent on the initiatives that matter to us. Without that guarantee, we see these tax proposals for what they are: Half-baked, expensive distractions.

San Francisco is already an expensive place to live—we don’t need taxes that make it more expensive to raise a family. We know that these tax proposals will have no real impact on complex diseases like obesity and diabetes. What we do know, however, is that these taxes would disproportionately hurt those who are already struggling to get by.

That’s why we’ve come together to form a citizens’ coalition, Enough Is Enough: Don’t Tax Our Groceries. Learn more about the negative impact a new grocery tax would have on San Francisco’s low-income and hardworking families. Then, join us!
