| December 3, 2022 | 0 Comments

Making its return from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, December 7 is the popular “Share the Love” event, hosted by Kearny Mesa Subaru and Meals on Wheels San Diego County. This free event is open to the public and brings together some of San Diego’s best food truck eats, all in support of local nonprofits, including Meals on Wheels San Diego County. The event takes place at Kearny Mesa Subaru, located at

4797 Convoy Street in San Diego, CA 9211. To bring in the holiday spirit, the event will include festive holiday decorations and a special appearance from the President and CEO of Meals on Wheels San Diego County, Brent Wakefield, dressed up as Santa Claus.

For 14 years, Subaru of America, Inc. has held its annual “Share the Love” event to donate critical funds to select charities around the nation. Since the campaign’s inception, Subaru of America, Inc. and its participating retailers have given back more than $227 million to over 1,700 hometown charities throughout the country.

Since 2010, Kearny Mesa Subaru selected Meals on Wheels San Diego County as one of its charities to support local homebound seniors in need of nutritious meals. This year, for every new car purchased or leased from Nov. 17, 2022 through Jan. 3, 2023, Kearny Mesa Subaru will donate $250 to the owner’s charity of choice from four nationally selected agencies. In 2021, Kearny Mesa Subaru donated $30,000 to Meals on Wheels San Diego County through the funds raised by new car purchases and leases.

“We’re honored to once again be selected by Kearny Mesa Subaru as one of its “Share the Love” beneficiaries,” says Wakefield. “The funds that we receive from this community event not only support our meal delivery service, but also most importantly helps ensure the health and safety of our homebound clients around San Diego County. We’re thankful to Kearny Mesa Subaru for its longtime support of our seniors.”

Community members are invited to attend the “Share the Love” celebration at Kearny Mesa Subaru. All food truck vendors will have their tasty bites available for purchase, including The Groovy Greek, Epic Eats and Born in Brooklyn. Attendees will also enjoy local celebrity judges and Santa Claus choosing their favorite food truck.

Participating vendors will compete for the title of “Best Dish” where local celebrity judges will vote on the winning food truck. At 12:15 p.m. the winning food truck will be selected and given a trophy of recognition.
