In 2015, the San Diego Green Building Council's Green Assistance Program helped certify the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank as LEED Gold for O+M. The project started with a feasibility study of recommended sustainability measures which were incorporated in the building. The result was an efficient, green building! This tour will provide attendees with a close up view of many of these measures, including an anaerobic digester, battery system, thermal storage, and much more. After the tour, SDGBC staff will introduce the upcoming GAP program to re-certify the San Diego Food Bank! Please click on the RSVP link below to reserve your spot!
