Join Feeding San Diego in spreading love by supporting restaurants across San Diego County while also helping to feed people in our community facing hunger.

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been devastating to restaurants across San Diego County. Sadly, many have had to close, and those that remain are fighting to stay afloat and to keep their staff employed. So many of these restaurants have been incredibly supportive of Feeding San Diego and to our community over the years — and now it’s our turn to help.

Spread love by supporting a participating restaurant and by purchasing a meal for a person facing hunger. Here’s how it works:

  1. Select from one of the restaurants below
  2. Order your favorites and add the “Gift a Meal” item from the menu too!
  3. The restaurant will alert Feeding San Diego to your meal donation
  4. We will pick up the meal and get it to a person in San Diego County facing hunger.
It’s that easy!
