Special Large-scale Emergency Food Distribution for 1,000 Families (1,000 Vehicles) 

 at SDCCU Stadium (formerly Qualcomm Stadium)

Saturday, March 28, 2020 9 a.m. until the food is gone

WHAT:

The San Diego Food Bank and the San Diego & Imperial Counties Labor Council will host a large-scale “drive-thru” food distribution for low-income families and those affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

In order to follow social distancing guidelines, the food distribution will be “touchless.” Attendees will not leave their cars. Food will be placed directly in the truck. 

The distribution is first come, first served. The Food Bank will have enough food supplies to serve 1,000 vehicles starting at 9 a.m.

For health and safety reasons, no one will be allowed to “walk up” or receive food on foot. Individuals and families who are not able to arrive by car should call the Food Bank at 1-866-350-FOOD (3663) or visit: www.SanDiegoFoodBank.org/GetHelp for a food distribution site near their home.

WHEN:           

Saturday, March 28, 2020 from 9 a.m. until all of the food is gone

WHERE:          

SDCCU Stadium (formerly Qualcomm Stadium) 9449 Friars Rd, San Diego, CA 92108

ATTENDEES MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING INCOME GUIDELINES:

The food distribution is open only to households that meet the following income guidelines. This will be a “self-certifying” food distribution, meaning that families will not need to show proof of income or provide I.D. to receive food assistance. Families simply need to verbally verify that they meet the income guidelines (below), and a volunteer will sign the signature pad on behalf of each family.
