Run for a Hunger-Free San Diego
Did you know proceeds from the San Diego Run for the Hungry 5K & 10K benefit local hunger-relief programs? The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and their North County Food Bank chapter comprise the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County. Through their North County Food Bank chapter and by partnering with more than 500 nonprofit partners with feeding programs, the Food Bank provides nutritious food to individuals and families in need in communities throughout San Diego County.
Last year, the Food Bank distributed 32 million pounds of food and serves, on average, 350,000 people per month in San Diego County. Now, as a result of the pandemic, they are providing emergency food assistance to nearly 600,000 people every month, including families who have been impacted.
Virtual Food Drive for the San Diego Food Bank
Every year, we encourage physical food drive donations on race morning. However, because we won't be gathering together this year, we are encouraging those who are in a position to give to donate online through the San Diego Run for the Hungry Virtual Food Drive. Every $1 donated provides 5 meals. Click the Donate Now button to help feed hope this holiday season.
