Food Insecurity is Real in San Diego County – Help Feed People!

September is Hunger Action Month.  Organizations all over San Diego County will focus on fighting hunger this month.  Take action on the hunger crisis and learn more about the collective response to food insecurity, or jump right in, and sign up to deliver a meal to one of our community partners.

450,000 people living in San Diego County face food insecurity every day. This means they don’t know where their next meal will come from. Of these people, 1 in 5 are children who go to bed hungry every night. 

North Coast has coordinated these HIGH need projects that take place year-round. Sign up below.

Bread of Life Rescue Mission:  Oceanside, Wednesdays*
Operation Hope Shelter:  Vista, Thursdays*
Fraternity House or Michaelle House for HIV Patients: Vista/Escondido, Wednesdays or Thursdays

*Groups are asked to bring a meal that has been commercially prepared.  Depending on the shelter, head-counts are ~25-30 for dinner.   Check specific details under the project description.
