Stuff the Bus


Drive away hunger in San Diego County by participating in the 13th Annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive!

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected thousands of families in San Diego this year, and the number of people the SD Food Bank serves every month has nearly doubled to 600,000 due to the crisis. Donations are highly needed.

Join us to help stop hunger in San Diego! Your food donation to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank will help thousands of local families in need this winter. 

Visit any Albertsons or VONS store and purchase critically-needed items for donation to the San Diego Food Bank.

(Sorry, the Food Bank cannot accept any glass containers or homemade foods.)
