Feeding America San Diego

Agency Description
Solving Hunger While Ending Food Waste Feeding San Diego is on a mission to solve hunger while ending food waste. Established in 2007, Feeding San Diego is the leading hunger-relief organization in San Diego County and the only Feeding America member in the region. More than 40% of food in our community goes to waste every day ? more than enough to end hunger. Feeding San Diego connects and distributes food to neighbors in need from more than 500 food donors, including grocery stores, restaurants, and retailers like Starbucks. We also source food from more than 225 farms and packing sheds throughout California. The majority of this food would otherwise end up in the landfill. Feeding San Diego distributes healthy, nutritious meals to more than 63,000 children, individuals, seniors, and military members through two distinct methods: 100 direct service sites and 150 non-profit partnerships. Thanks to our non-profit partners, half of our food never comes to our distribution center, reducing pollution and expense. In addition to rescuing and distributing wholesome, high-quality food, Feeding San Diego ensures people can access additional food resources. We help hundreds of people enroll in CalFresh (food stamps) to receive benefits each year. Qué es CalFresh?

What We Do...

United Way of San Diego CountyOur success is measured by the lives we transform: the children who succeed, the families that thrive, the partners that align with us, leveraging resources and expertise to transform the lives of children, young adults, and families in our community and move them forward into a brighter future.

These stories are our commitment to the San Diego County and the challenges we face together: an intern watches a second-grader transform from missing school to setting an attendance record. A volunteer tax-preparer sees a struggling family transform from fearing tax day to looking forward to their EITC refund. A high school student transforms from a teenager with no aspirations into a young person with a future pipelined to a prospering local tech industry.

Change starts small, but UWSD’s goals are big and hopeful: from transforming hundreds of lives to hundreds of thousands of lives in our region.
