Estate Gifts & Planned Giving

Make the Food Bank a Part of Your Legacy

You have made supporting people in need in San Diego County a priority in your lifetime.

Continue that legacy with a gift in your will or estate plans that will provide nutritious food to hungry San Diegans for years to come.

By feeding the families of tomorrow, you can help the San Diego Food Bank break the cycle of poverty because hungry children struggle in school, and without a proper education a child is likely to remain in poverty throughout his or her lifetime.

Your legacy gift will help break the cycle of poverty and help families move forward without the paralyzing fear of hunger so children can focus on learning, and their parents can focus on earning.

Join the Food Bank’s Legacy Circle, and put the next generation on the path to success by providing the nutritious food they need to learn, grow and thrive. Members of our Legacy Circle are the Food Bank’s most committed supporters and receive special recognition and benefits for supporting our mission.
