June 16 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm

Kyle Kraska and the CBS 8 News Team invite Food Bank supporters and the San Diego community to give back on Tuesday, June 16 at Pechanga Arena (3500 Sports Arena Blvd., San Diego, CA 92110) from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Here are the two ways you can help individuals and families who’ve been impacted by the pandemic at this event:


The San Diego Food Bank will have a team of volunteers on-site to collect donations of nonperishable food items from the community.

With health and safety in mind, donors are invited to drive up in their vehicles and stay inside as a volunteer collects the donations from your vehicle.

Some of our most needed food items (nonperishable and unopened) include:

+ Canned meats (tuna and chicken)
+ Canned fruits
+ Canned vegetables
+ Canned soups
+ Jars of peanut butter
+ Packaged oatmeal and cereal
+ and more!

Please note that we are unable to accept donations of homemade foods along with any food products that require refrigeration.

If you wish to make a virtual donation instead, CLICK HERE to donate through CBS 8’s custom San Diego Food Bank Virtual Food Drive link. For every $1 donated, 5 meals can be provided to a San Diegan in need.

The American Red Cross will also be on site for blood donations. To donate blood, please make an appointment by CLICKING HERE.

Thank you, San Diego, for your continued support during this heightened time of need in our community.
