Freedom Dogs:  Speeding the recovery and enhancing the lives of wounded military heroes through the use of specialty-trained service dogs. Freedom Dogs serves wounded members of the military who are being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and/or other physical impairments. Along with our trainers, our specialty service dogs provide both physical and emotional support, helping wounded warriors successfully make the challenging transition back to civilian life, or in some cases, return to active duty.


Founded in 1977, the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank is an independent hunger-relief nonprofit that provides emergency food assistance to hundreds of thousands of San Diegan families each month with the support of our network of more than 500 nonprofit partners throughout the county.


Canine Companions is a nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly trained service dogs at no cost to the recipient. The California Dreamin’ Volunteer Chapter of Los Angeles and Orange Counties is raising money for Canine Companions through DogFest Southwest to help transform more lives.


San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project is a network of citizens, farmers, chefs, gardeners, teachers, and students working to encourage the growth and consumption of regional food. From farm to fork, we focus awareness and work toward a more ecologically sound, economically viable and socially just food system in San Diego. By eating locally, not only do you get fresher, better-tasting food, but you also help support family farms and encourage a vibrant local economy. Please explore the bountiful agricultural and gardening opportunities in San Diego, learn how to become an informed participant in our local food system, and help us encourage others to do the same.
