the march did snarled traffic near the trans-a terminal so eastbound commuter buses were delayed for a time but not for long. >> several more days until we see super bowl sunday. are they planning any or protests later this week? >> reporter: i think they are not likely to tip their hand about what they're planning because when it goes out on social media and law enforcement is able to find out exactly where the meetup is and what the plan is, they put a tent encampment here today which did not happen because hurricanes were put up and police were ready. so there may very well be more protests in the days ahead and we'll have to wait and see. >> debora villalon, thank you. amount of leftovers from san francisco's super bowl week is being used to feed the hungry and homeless. the group food runners arranges to pick up extra food from restaurants and other businesses in the city and then most. organizers say the group
