San Diego Food Bank

San Diego Food Bank

The SD Food Bank receives food from a range of sources including locally-run food drives, the USDA, growers, retailers, and wholesalers. Once the food arrives at their warehouse, they rely on volunteers to inspect and sort the food. Food is then categorized by food group and boxed and bagged for distribution to the community. The Food Bank distributes food directly to families and individuals in need at 183 distribution sites throughout the county every month, often in parking lots. The Food Bank also provides food to 350 nonprofits that operate feeding programs. Nonprofits pick up food from the Food Bank’s warehouse and distribute the food to people in need in their areas. This is a great place to volunteer as they have so many opportunities every day.
