Feeding San Diego
Feeding San Diego is a non-profit organization on a mission to connect every person facing hunger with nutritious meals by maximizing food rescue. Established in 2007, Feeding San Diego rescues surplus food from local and national food donors before it goes to waste and gets it to people facing hunger in San Diego County. It is the only Feeding America partner food bank in the region. Each year, the hunger-relief organization provides more than 35.4 million meals to children, families, seniors, college students, military families, and veterans in partnership with a network of nearly 350 local charities, schools, colleges, faith communities, healthcare providers, and meal sites. It operates nine distinct programs countywide that support people facing hunger with food assistance or resources. More than 76 percent of the food distributed by Feeding San Diego is rescued, allowing high-quality food to be redirected instead of going to waste. By diverting more than 31 million pounds of food from the landfill, Feeding San Diego protects people and the planet. Every $1 donated helps provide two meals to people facing hunger.
