Support our Food 4 Kids Backpack Program through our annual Dollar-A-Dish Campaign!


Restaurants, breweries and cafes all over San Diego County participate in the Food Bank’s Dollar-A-Dish campaign every year! Each participating location selects a signature dish and/or drink, and every time that menu item is ordered, $1 is donated to the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program.

About the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program

The Food 4 Kids Backpack Program provides weekend backpacks filled with nutritious food to elementary school students living in poverty. Kids on the program receive free school meals Monday through Friday, but face hunger at home on the weekends. The backpack of food they receive sees them through the weekend so they can return to school ready to learn on Monday.  Click here for more detailed information about the program and participating schools.

Support Dollar-A-Dish by Dining Out in August

We encourage our supporters to visit one of the participating locations and order the featured Dollar-A-Dish menu item in support of our Food 4 Kids Backpack Program.
