La Jolla Town Council turns Sunsetter into food drive


A Holiday Food Drive to benefit the San Diego Food Bank will take place at the La Jolla Town Council’s Sunsetter Community Gathering from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at Aroma Café & Barfly, 909 Prospect St.

Attendees are asked to bring at least one canned food item to donate. The food bank most needs canned soups, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats (tuna, ham and chicken), dried goods (beans, pasta, rice and other grains), peanut butter and infant formula.

At the Sunsetter, food bank development director Trisha Gooch will discuss the organization’s mission and distribution procedures to families in need. Barfly will feature drink specials and complimentary appetizers, and a raffle will take place for prizes donated by area merchants. All proceeds will go to the food bank.

Admission is $5 for town council members, $10 for non-members, and new members who join and pay dues at the Sunsetter may attend for free.
