PRFD 9 - Results!

Thank you to everyone who made it out to Iron Fist last Saturday for Slabratory Presents The 9th Annual Punk Rock Food Drive

So many tremendous folks spent a ton of time and energy ensuring the success of our event. 

Thank you to SLABRATORY CLOTHING and 91X Loudspeaker for their sponsorship.

Iron Fist Brewing Company is one of the raddest places we’ve had the privilege of hosting this event. Our sixteenth show went as smooth as we’d expect thanks to your excellent staff and hospitality.

Thank you to all of the businesses that donated towards our raffle. Pitching in to win prizes from your great companies is always a blast for attendees.

San Diego County has some incredible bands so there is always so much talent to choose from when booking a PRFD event. We loved the mix of sounds of this year’s acts. Thank you to Oceanside Sound System, Surface Report, Fallen Monuments, Badabing, NOWHERELAND, Parade of Horribles, and Drew Smith for rockin’ our damn socks off.

Thank you to the groups and individuals who raised food at their businesses and added it to our fundraising efforts. Wavelength Brewing Company and Oceanside Ale Works hosted bins the week leading up to the event. Vista Fit Body Boot Camp raised 784 pounds of food in two weeks! Others brought food with them to Iron Fist to add over 1,200 more pounds.

Thank you to Los Tacos for hosting a fundraising night and to everyone who donated online. The money raised there coupled with the amount raised on Nov. 11th added up to $3,124!

The total meals of all the foods and funds that were presented to North County Food Bank comes to roughly 17,200 meals!

This community is unbelievable. We are always humbled by your generosity and look forward to the next opportunity to embrace it.

Thank you!

Summer 2017 PRFD Results!

Thank you to everyone who made it out to Iron Fist Brewing last Saturday for The Summer 2017 Punk Rock Food Drive.

This Summer's event was our most successful fundraising campaign so far.  Over the last few years we have been working on ways to extend our fundraising efforts beyond just the date of the show.  Vista Fit Body Bootcamp raised nearly 500 pounds of food in one week.  454 Tattoo hosted their own tattoo raffle to encourage customers to donate food.  Grubby's hosted a fundraiser night that helped donate an additional $200 towards are cause.  Over 60 local businesses donate goods or services towards our raffle which generated tons of donations via ticket sales.  Many people collected food on their own the week leading up to the show to increase the amount of canned goods they could bring with them to Iron Fist.

Such a huge collobaration of caring and effort.  The results are amazing:
1,354 pounds of food and $3,600 were raised, for a grand total of 19,083 meals to benefit the San Diego Food Bank's North County Food Bank!

And even more exciting.  This event has brought us over an incredible milestone.
Over 100,000 meals since our first show in 2009!

It's hard for us to believe that each little show we've put on can add up to numbers that large.  It really drives home the value of working together and sticking with something that you believe in.  We can't do any of this alone and owe so much to so many.  Thank you all for making Punk Rock Food Drive such a successful and worthwhile endeavor.  We can't wait to see what's next.

Punk Rock Food Drive has raised over 91,000 meals for San Diego County residents since 2009!

8th Annual PRFD Results!

To everyone who came out to the Punk Rock Food Drive on Saturday!

We had one of our best turnouts to date. Iron Fist Brewing Company was jumping and the staff were amazing! Such a great mix of bands playing to a lively and receptive audience.

The coolest part about tallying up the results of a Punk Rock Food Drive event is that the numbers keep changing. Just yesterday we received a $100 online donation. That's 500 meals. If you missed this year's event and want to keep knocking this number up, go to www.punkrockfood.com and click that "DONATE NOW" link.

For now, thank you for all for raising over 17,000 meals! That is a staggering amount of food!
Once again you've surpassed our previous drive efforts and made this our most successful event yet!

We're more excited than ever. Our next PRFD will likely get us over some humbling milestones and we can't to wait to reach those with you in the future.
Share food with friends and family, today and always.
It takes so much preparation and work to get these events organized but things ran so smoothly. Really just a story-book outcome of what we'd hope to see. It seems like work going in but somewhere in the process it morphs into play.
We're lucky to have you and to know you. Everyone who attends and donates makes such a bigger impact than we ever could on our own.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Summer 2016 PRFD Results!

The Summer 2016 Punk Rock Food Drive was our most successful Punk Rock Food Drive yet!

Since 2009 when we started this mess, we have never raised more meals than we did this round.
But let's be honest - YOU raised these meals. We simply provided an opportunity to give.

Let's take a look at the numbers:
The food that was collected and brought to the show totaled 599 pounds!
Direct donations, online donations, Grubby's fundraiser, raffle sales, t-shirt sales, and auctions brought in $3,018 in funds!

All of these numbers come to a grand total of 15,500 meals raised for The North County Chapter of The San Diego Food Bank.

This is a tremendous accomplishment that all involved should be incredibly proud of.  Friends, family, raffle donors, bands, and attendees - We all did this together!

Thank you for continuing to make Punk Rock Food Drive a rewarding and useful endeavor. The time and effort put into organizing these events comes back a thousand fold thanks to this community's overwhelming capacity to care.
