The month of April celebrates our Mother Earth. With National Gardening Day on April 14, Earth Day on April 22 and National Picnic Day on April 23, there are a bunch of different ways to get outdoors, get your hands dirty and enjoy our natural surroundings.
April 28 is a national holiday dedicated to stopping food waste. We use a lot of different food items in our gift baskets and sometimes we have a surplus that we know won't make it out of our shop before the 'Use By' date. Rather than throwing these products away, we prefer to donate them.
The Basket Corner and Le Caramel strive to find ways to shop local, use recyclable products and minimize waste. We are also committed to ending food waste. When products that we include in our gift baskets and gift boxes are about to expire, we donate them to our local San Diego Salvation Army Kroc Center.
As of April 2021, the Salvation Army Kroc Center - San Diego is offering food
distribution to any registered client. If you are in need of assistance, drive-through food distribution is:
Every Friday from 8:30AM–11:30AM and 1:30PM–4:00PM
Eligibility extends to all residents in the following zip codes:
