The Westside Food Bank’s annual walk-a-thon and kick-off for our holiday food drive attracts hundreds of participants from companies, churches, schools, non-profit agencies and the community at large. There will be food & drinks, games, raffle prizes and much more.

New Starting Location this year, Ocean View Park, 2701 Barnard Way - just south of Ocean Park Blvd on the east side of Barnard Way, at the Beach in Santa Monica. Parking: in the all day city beach lot south of Ocean Park Blvd.
