    Go Red For Women
    Location: US Grant Hotel - View Map

    We’ve got this. We’re in this together. We can do it.

    We are Mothers. Sisters. Daughters. Wives. Partners. Friends. Warriors. Executives. Leaders. 

    We are Women. Strong. Resilient. Relentless. Fierce. 

    We are united by purpose and connected by passion, and we are flipping the script to ensure all women have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. Since 2004, the Go Red for Women movement has educated millions of women about their No. 1 killer: cardiovascular disease. But now we face a new challenge; research shows that younger women and women of color are not aware that this threat is real. 

    We continue to innovate ways to ensure all women are aware of their heart disease risk and empower women to take control of their well-being. Good heart health is a journey, not a destination, and Go Red for Women wants to walk hand-in-hand with women through every age and every stage as a trusted health partner. 

    We are also working tirelessly to accelerate science, advance public health policy, and engage more women in research and STEM – and it’s all thanks to supporters like you. 

    There are heroes in each of us, and together, we CAN eradicate heart disease and stroke in women.T

    Chef, Cork, and Crafts Gala
    Location: San Diego Food Bank - View Map


    6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


    The San Diego Food Bank is hosting our 10th annual Chefs, Cork & Craft Gala: Hang Ten taking place on Saturday, April 23, 2022 outside on the grounds of our Miramar warehouse. This year’s gala will be a memorable celebration that will feature live musical entertainment, fabulous silent and live auction items, delicious drinks and hors d’oeuvres during the opening reception with a chef-prepared dinner for gala guests to enjoy outdoors under the stars.


    The Jacob’s & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and our North County chapter comprise the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County. Last year, the Food Bank distributed 63 millions pounds of food, and the Food Bank serves, on average, 500,000 people per month in San Diego County. Through our North County Food Bank chapter, and by partnering with nearly 500 non-profit partners with feeding programs, the Food Bank provides nutritious food to individuals and families in communities throughout San Diego.

    Our Mission:

    The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and our North County Food Bank chapter provide nutritious food to people in need, advocate for the hungry, and educate the public about hunger-related issues. 

    The Food Bank operates a number of hunger-relief and resource programs for our client population. 

    The Food Bank receives food from a range of sources including locally-run food drives, the USDA, growers, retailers, and wholesalers. Once the food arrives at our warehouse, we rely on volunteers to inspect and sort the food. Food is then categorized by food group and boxed and bagged for distribution to the community.

    Approximately 32, 000 people volunteer at the Food Bank’s warehouse every year – saving vast labor costs. The Food Bank distributes food directly to families and individuals in need at more than 200 distribution sites throughout the county every month, often in parking lots.

    The Food Bank also provides food to more than 500 non-profits that operate feeding programs. Non-profits pick up food from the Food Bank’s warehouse and distribute the food to people in need in their areas. These nonprofits include soup kitchens, shelters, churches with feeding programs, schools, senior and disabled living facilities, and food pantries.
