About this Event
The annual Josephson-Spindler Gala Dinner & Silent Auction aims to expand awareness about food insecurity and its growing impact on our community. This year, the gala is on April 8th, 2023, from 6 pm to 10 pm at the San Diego Natural History Museum in the historic Balboa Park. Each year this memorable event has garnered national recognition from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. All proceeds from this year's event will support Brightside Produce, Kids Eat Right, and the Student Nutrition Organization at San Diego State University (SDSU).
For over 40 years, the Student Nutrition Organization (SNO) has served our community through volunteering, advocacy, and philanthropy. We strive for our members to develop strong professional and community relationships, and this gala is how we give back to our community locally and nationally. As the prevalence of food insecurity increases, SNO wants to bring attention to the Kids Eat Right campaign. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics developed this national campaign to educate families, communities, and policymakers about the importance of quality nutrition to promote optimal health for kids and their families.
Additionally, we want to shine a light on a local non-profit, Brightside Produce, which is a nonprofit "committed to increasing access to healthy food options in underserved communities through produce deliveries, while reducing food waste and strengthening the local food system in San Diego County.” Brightside produce also offers the students of SDSU the opportunities to volunteer and give back to our local community, helping to fight food insecurity.
Join us for a night under the stars with speakers Dr. Guadalupe Xochitl Ayala, representatives of Brightside Produce, and Sam Pantazopoulos from Vizer.
