Feeding San Diego partners with local chefs and restaurants to raise funds for families in need over the holidays

SAN DIEGO – Restaurants Unite Against Hunger is a new initiative inspired by a number of celebrity chefs who are on a mission to solve hunger in San Diego. As part of the Feeding San Diego Month of a Million Meals, restaurants across the county are donating a percentage of their daily proceeds on Tuesday, December 11, to help raise funds for holiday meals for people in our community experiencing hunger.

“It’s the holiday season and giving back is most important to me,” said Angelo Sosa, chef and partner of Death x Tequila in Encinitas and Bravo’s Top Chef All Star. “The last thing I want is San Diegans worrying about getting food onto their table. With Restaurants Unite Against Hunger, chefs and restaurants owners are joining together to help fight hunger, help our neighbors, and show the way for other local businesses to help out.”

When guests dine out on Tuesday, December 11, a dozen San Diego restaurants will donate five percent of all food and beverage sales to help Feeding San Diego provide meals for the one in eight San Diegans who are at risk of hunger, including 1 in 6 children.

Participating restaurants:

“We are humbled by the outpouring of support from some of San Diego’s finest restaurants and chefs,” said Vince Hall, CEO of Feeding San Diego. “When nearly half a million people in our community don’t know where their next meal is coming from, it is essential for us to work together to solve the issue. Our restaurant partners are demonstrating strong leadership in the fight against hunger and helping us realize our vision of a hunger-free and healthy San Diego.”
