Both the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and Feeding San Diego are operating as usual. By calling 211, clients can provide their address and be directed to the closest food distribution in their area.

The San Diego Food Bank website will direct to their distribution sites as contained on the 211 website (https://my211.force.com/s/service-directory?code=BD).

The San Diego Food Bank is in need of volunteers. Feeding San Diego distributions can be found on the ‘Need Help’ tab (https://feedingsandiego.org/need-help/food-distributions). Non-regular volunteer shifts have been canceled.

CalFresh (SNAP)

The CalFresh program and local CalFresh application assistance continue to operate as normal. Benefits will be received by enrollees as normal. Feeding San Diego continues to offer application assistance, however, all appointments will be conducted via telephone or Zoom conference. Feeding San Diego will not host any in-person visits or workshops.

San Diego Hunger Coalition

The coalition is putting together a COVID-19 food assistance-specific webpage, where visitors can get updated information on food distribution sites, CalFresh updates, CalWORKS updates, and WIC. They will also have opportunities for advocacy regarding emergency food funds from the State and Federal levels.

During these uncertain times, it is important that we remain calm, follow the advice of trusted sources, and remember that we will get through this together

Sincerely,

Lisa Lines
