Easy-to-use map directs San Diegans to hundreds of food distribution sites throughout the county
San Diego CA— With San Diego County on the California COVID-19 public watch list and the resulting closure of indoor operations for many businesses, San Diegans may find themselves out of work again and in need of critical food resources. Using Feeding San Diego’s find food map, San Diegans can easily enter their zip code and locate food distribution sites within two miles of their location, both those with and without eligibility requirements.
Feeding San Diego distributes more than 26 million meals a year across San Diego County in partnership with more than 300 local charities, schools, faith communities, meal sites, and food pantries. Hours vary by site, and all pertinent information is available on the find food map. In addition to its regular sites, Feeding San Diego continues to offer emergency food distributions to better serve the massive number of San Diegans economically impacted by the ongoing pandemic.
“There continue to be significant challenges as we navigate our way through this pandemic,” said Alicia Saake, Feeding San Diego Chief Operations Officer. “Many San Diegans are facing hunger for the first time due to the COVID-19 crisis and may not be aware of available food resources in their neighborhood. Feeding San Diego is here to help.”
Between March 14 and June 28, Feeding San Diego provided 7.9 million meals to the community, playing a pivotal role in COVID-19 relief efforts across San Diego County. The organization hosted more than 1,129 distributions, including youth meal sites and direct programs, and increased food supplied to its 162 agency partners to expand distribution of meals to those in need.
