Meals on Wheels San Diego County and Kearny Mesa Subaru invite San Diegans to their annual Share the Love Food Truck & More Event & Competition on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In celebration of the Subaru Share the Love event, San Diego’s top food trucks and restaurants will be on-site serving meals to hungry patrons.

Kearny Mesa Subaru, located at 4797 Convoy Street in San Diego, is once again hosting the awareness event that shines a light on the exploding need to help homebound seniors and encourages individuals to donate their time, talent or treasure. Additionally, the automaker will donate $250 for every new car purchased or leased from November 17, 2016, through January 3, 2017 to the owner’s charity of choice from four nationally selected agencies as well as a hometown charity selected by the dealership. In 2015, Meals on Wheels San Diego County garnered over $35,000 from Subaru and Meals on Wheels America ‘Share the Love’ campaign to help San Diego homebound seniors.

Local radio celebrity judges for this year’s event include Sky from “The Show” on iHeart Media’s Rock1053, Brian Wilson, director of Sports Sales & New Business Development at iHeart Media San Diego, and Shelly Dunn, from Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw on JACK 100.7 FM. Sky, Brian, & Shelly will be joining forces at the annual foodie event to judge a variety of meals from all food trucks and restaurants from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and bestow the “Judge’s Choice” award to the winner. In addition, patrons will again be able to vote for their favorite competitor for the “People’s Choice” award. Ted Leitner, the voice of the San Diego Padres & San Diego State Aztecs, will be stopping in to the event as well. The 2015 event drew over 400 people.

Confirmed food trucks and restaurants for this year’s event thus far include: Bite Me Express, Currywurst Frankfurt, Caliano by Spinelli, ‘Devilicious (2015 People’s Choice Winner), New York on Rye, Super Q, New Orleans, & Taco Picasso.
