Fall Food Drive 2019

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Help scare away hunger this fall by donating a bag of nonperishable food to our local food banks at the Orange County Great Park. The food drive kicks off during Irvine Global Village Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13, and continues through the month of October.

Irvine Global Village Festival is bigger and better than ever this year, taking place across two days and offering the community more food, music, art, and kids activities. Tickets to Irvine Global Village Festival are $5 per day, per person for those ages 3 and older. A $20 Family Pass offers one-day admission for up to six people. Save time the day of the festival and buy your tickets now at irvinefestival.org.

Food donations made on Saturday, October 12, benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. Donations on Sunday, October 13, benefit OC Food Bank. Cash or credit card donations are also accepted. Food or cash donations made during Irvine Global Village Festival receive entries in a daily raffle conducted by each of the food banks. Saturday prizes are provided by Second Harvest Food Bank, and Sunday prizes are provided by Orange County Food Bank. Get one raffle entry for every five cans donated, or for every $5 donated. Prize winners will be drawn each day. Prizes include gift cards, four Disneyland park hopper tickets valued at more than $700, and Avengers LEGO sets valued at more than $1,000. 

Donations made during Irvine Global Village Festival will be accepted at two different locations:

  • Delivery your donations to the food bank book at Irvine Global Village Festival in the heart of the Orange County Great Park by the Great Park Balloon.
  • Donations will also be accepted both days in Orange County Great Park's Parking Lot P5.

Donations will continue to be collected throughout the month of October at the Orange County Great Park Visitors Center during regular business hours.
