Zombies are familiar with the struggles of being hungry and not knowing where their next meal is going to come from, so we can identify with those in our community who may be short on their luck and need a little extra help from the San Diego Food Bank. Since we’re not all totally terrible savages, as portrayed in the hilariously awesome Zombieland, we’d like to give back by collecting food for the still-living!
Join us on Thursday, October 1st, 2009 at 5:30PM, at the Pacific Gaslamp 15, in downtown San Diego, for the Food Not Brains Zombiewalk & Food Drive. The first 150 zombies, to show up with donations for the food bank, will receive a wristband and pass for VIP seating at a special screening of Zombieland (in theaters nationwide on October 2nd) immediately following the walk. Following the movie (at approximately 9PM), join us for ANOTHER WALK and then an afterparty at Stage Saloon, where we can get our undead dance on to the sounds of Zombie Surf Camp!
If you are unable to meet up with us for the 5:30PM walk, please join us promptly at 9:00PM for another walk after the movie. Meet us in front of the Gaslamp Pacific 15 between 8:45PM and 9:00PM and we will do another sweep of the Gaslamp Quarter, then head back to Stage Saloon (21+) for the afterparty!
To Donate Food:
Last year’s food drive was a total success and we were happily surprised by the amount of donations San Diego Food Bank received! Let’s make this year even better! Please bring food & goods to the Pacific Gaslamp 15 Theater between 5PM and 6PM. San Diego Food Bank’s most-needed items include the following…
* Canned Meat (ham, chicken, tuna)
* Canned Nuts & Seeds
* Peanut Butter
* Macaroni & Cheese
* Canned Fruits
* Canned Vegetables
* Canned Juices
* Dried Fruit
* Evaporated Milk
* Powdered Milk
* Puddings & Custards (mixes ok)

Please remember that only non-perishable foods can be donated. Also, please no used items, homemade goods, or glass containers. If you can’t make it down to donate (we encourage zombies & non-zombies alike to bring items to donate!), please visit San Diego Food Bank’s Virtual Food Drive to donate from the comfort of your own home!
If you’re joining us on the walk or just wanting to watch the walk, please review our WALK GUIDELINES! This will keep things safe & fun for everyone involved.
If you’re looking for a good place to watch the walk, many of the awesome resturants along 5th Avenue, in the Gaslamp Quarter, have patio seating which will give you a prime vantage point. They also have a variety of tasty food options to choose from, so head down and grab an early dinner and the best seat for zombiewatching!
