Once the buses are filled with donations, bus drivers will transport the food to the San Diego Food Bank’s warehouse in Miramar where the donations will be unloaded by dozens of volunteers to be sorted and then distributed to families in need.

The goal for this year’s food drive is to collect 30,000 pounds of nonperishable food items in one week! Are you up to the challenge San Diego?!
