San Diego Food Bank ID Card

New Process for Market Participation

The San Diego Food Bank has initiated a new distribution process in which participants can receive a Food Bank ID card.  In order to receive the ID card, an Food Bank ID intake form will need to be completed.  This card can be used at all future food distributions and throughout San Diego County including all campuses within the San Diego Community College District.  

You are welcome to bring the application prefilled or complete a printed copy on the day of the food distribution, as a wet signature is required.  We will do our best to provide an ID card by the next food distribution. 

Sample ID Card:

San Diego Food Bank ID Card

Please note: if you have received a Food Bank ID card from another agency within San Diego County, you will not need to complete another intake form.  As mentioned, the ID card can be used at all food distribution.
