Thank You for Supporting this Campaign!

Thank you to everyone who donated in support of the Nourishing Neighbors Summer Food Drive during the month of May! We appreciate the community’s help in stocking the Food Bank’s shelves ahead of the summer months when demand typically increases. It takes a community to feed a community.

Special thank you to PNC Bank, Sycuan, CBS 8 News, Audacy radio stations, The San Diego Union-Tribune, Albertsons, and Vons for supporting this campaign.


This campaign has ended.

From May 1 to May 31, you can help the San Diego Food Bank and our North County Food Bank chapter feed children and families facing food insecurity during our Nourishing Neighbors Summer Food Drive in partnership with Albertsons and Vons supermarkets countywide.

Many families served by the Food Bank are still recovering from the lasting financial impacts of the pandemic combined with record-high inflation that is increasing the costs of rent, food, utilities and gas.

With the community’s support, this year’s Nourishing Neighbors Summer Food Drive will raise vital food donations and funds to feed children and families facing food insecurity in communities throughout San Diego County.

Here’s How You Can Help

Albertsons and Vons shoppers are invited to make a monetary donation at checkout. Every San Diego County Albertsons and Vons location is participating in our summer food drive campaign. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide 2 meals to our neighbors in need.
