San Diego Waves: Step Forward Day 2016 event logo - Pepperdine University

Saturday, September 10

9 AM - 1:30 PM

Join the San Diego Waves to partner with San Diego Food Bank for a day of service! The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County, serving, on average, 400,000 people per month in San Diego County. The San Diego Waves will be assisting with the 2016 San Diego Blues Festival benefitting the San Diego Food Bank and North Country Food Bank. All ages are welcome to participate in this fun-filled service project. Children 17 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult chaperone. Each volunteer will receive a complimentary official 2016 Blues Festival T-shirt and a meal from any of the Blues Festival food vendors as thanks for participating. The volunteer shift is from 9 AM - 1:30 PM and volunteers are also welcome to stay after their shift to enjoy the festival!

Parking downtown is limited, so please leave early to arrive 15 minutes before your shift. We strongly recommend that you use public transportation such as the trolley. You will be given $5 reimbursement (at the Volunteer Check-in Booth) should you take the trolley. The San Diego Trolley stop is just two blocks from the event venue. There is also Lyft & Uber. Please do not park in the Seaport Village lot as they do not accommodate Blues Festival parking. Please check the San Diego Blues Festival website for updates on parking!

This project is a day in the sun, with lots of standing and walking around. Please make sure you wear comfortable shoes and jeans or shorts. You will be provided with a Food Bank apron at check-in to identify you as a Food Bank volunteer. Please remember to bring sunscreen, water, hat, sunglasses, and anything you need for a day in the sun!
Please note: There is no check-in area for bags, backpacks, or personal items.
