Your Backyard or Living Room

Join us from home for THE FIRST GREAT BACKYARD CAMPOUT 2020! starting on Saturday, May 2nd and continuing throughout summer.

While we may not be able to pack up and leave for this year’s camping trips, it doesn’t mean we can’t put up a tent and have some fun at home. Help raise funds for L.A. families in need and spend some quality time with yours. If you can’t camp out but would still like to help the hungry, please consider donating to this event to help participants reach their goal. You can even credit your donation to a specific camper or team.

Rules of the Great Backyard Campout:

1. ‘Reserve’ a spot in your own backyard by donating a backyard campground fee. If you are part of a school, faith organization or group, click “join a team.”
2. Ask family and friends to sponsor your Backyard Campout: every $1 provides 4 meals for someone facing hunger.
3. Families agree to camp out all night, starting on May 2nd or any day thereafter: tent? sleeping bags? living room pillow fort? Dealer’s choice. Share your pics using #GreatBackYardCampout
4. Children prepare dinner: kids, give your parents a break and cook your favorite meal!
5. Parents do breakfast: after the camp out is over, enjoy a family meal (indoors if you’re so inclined).

Virtual Event

Brought to you by Westside Food Bank’s Auxiliary Board, join in an intimate conversation & learning with a local sommelier.

Buy your red and white wine of choice, then join LA sommelier Clay Fox for a virtual wine tasting 101, followed by a Q&A session. Clay will teach us how to taste reds and whites with a keen palate, how to differentiate between good wines and better wines, and help you acquire new language skills to successfully discuss with a sommelier the next time you’re at a restaurant and hoping for a good pick!

RSVP online for this intimate sommelier experience for a suggested minimum donation of $10 per household. All funds raised help Westside Food Bank provide food for people in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
