Summer 2013 PRFD Announced

Notes For Needs & Another Zeke Productions ~ PRESENTS:
The Summer 2013 Punk Rock Food Drive
Sat. July 13th at The Void

We're excited as hell to bring Punk Rock Food Drive down to the greater SD area this Summer.

NO COVER - BRING NON-PERISHABLE FOOD!

The Cause: We're partnering with The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank to raise food and funds for our hungry neighbors.

The Bands:
Moosejaw
Sculpins
Revenge Club
Parade of Horribles
Dead Frets
HeartRot

Many food banks see a tremendous dip in donations in the middle of the year while November and December tend to see major spikes in giving. Sadly, hunger doesn't take holidays. Right now is a great time to get involved and help feed a fellow San Diegan!

This is a FREE show. All we ask is for everyone to bring AT LEAST two non-perishable food items.

We'll also be raffling off prizes from local vendors to raise money for the SD Food Bank. Win tattoos     gift cards     clothing and more!

We're so grateful to have a great group of friends involved helping to make this show a reality.  We are working hard to make this Summer's PRFD a huge success. In the end, it's all of you that come out and fill the food bins that give the most.  Donating your time and maybe a little bit of money to help sustain another human life.  Thank you for your generosity and selflessness!

4th Annual Punk Rock Food Drive Results!

Well, the results are in from the 4th Annual Punk Rock Food Drive.    

All of the food raised combined with the money earned through sales of raffle tickets, t-shirts, artwork, vendor merchandise, and online donations has resulted in 12,000 meals for North County Community Services.  That's enough to feed a family of four for over 2 years!

We can't thank you enough for this tremendous accomplishment.  Your attendance and support of Punk Rock Food Drive help us to continue this great work.  Our success is your success and the result of our collaboration is a stronger community.

We met so many amazing people this year and we want to continue to move forward together.  If you have ideas that can lend themselves to an even more successful PRFD, please share them.  If you know a band or a business who may be interested in joining us for future events     send them our way.  All of our info and contacts are available at www.punkrockfood.com.  We have no desire to go this alone and are looking forward to continuing the relationships we've made and forging new ones as well.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity!

PRFD 2012 Promo Video

Our good friend Lisardo at ShamelessShirt.com cruised out on a coastal flyering spree with me to get the word out about Punk Rock Food Drive.  He shot all of this video and edited through a ton of video to complete this for us and for that we are grateful.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

3rd Annual PRFD Totals

We are extremely fortunate to have friends and supporters like you.  Your kindness and attention made this year's Punk Rock Food Drive one of our greatest yet.

Many people gathered at Flying Elephant Pub on November 5th to give food directly benefiting North County Community Services, North County's Food Bank.  Others used our raffle as a way to donate money straight to the organization.  This year also saw an increase in online donations.  We were also glad to see individuals continuing to organize their own ""mini"" food drives and bringing those donations with them to the show.

Thanks to all of these efforts we were able to amass 1,050 pounds of food!  Between our raffle, direct donations, and t-shirt sales we collected over $1,200!  All of these contributions equate to nearly 4,500 meals for hungry people right here in North County!  These meals will bring much needed comfort to many this holiday season.

Thank you for coming out and providing this amazing gift.

Thank you also to our friends at Flying Elephant for providing a beautiful backdrop for our fundraising efforts.  Thanks as well to our new friends at BEOK, to the great bands that performed, and to all the businesses who donated to our raffle.  Each of these groups played an important role in making the whole event a success.

We look forward to your continued support as we head into 2012.

We can't thank you enough for your willingness to assist in this important endeavor.  Hunger is a persistent dilemma in our community and indeed, throughout the world.  But it does not need to be.  Your caring actions have demonstrated our ability to directly improve the lives of others.
Thank you.

With gratitude,
Chris Mazzola and Jason York

PRFD 2: A Huge Success, Thanks to You!

Thank you to all who came out to support our 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Punk Rock Food Drive on Nov. 6th.

Many individuals in our community came out on November 6th to participate in the food drive directly.  Others even organized food drives at their places of work to help increase the success of our drive.  Through their combined efforts, we were able to raise over 1,100 pounds of food for North County Community Services, making this our most successful food drive yet. In addition, the raffle we held raised over $1000 in aid.  The overall donations of money and food have resulted in approximately 4,250 meals for hungry people throughout North County.

We can't thank you enough for donating your time and energy to helping the hungry in our area.  It has been a pleasure working with you to achieve this end and we hope to receive your support in the future.
