Food bank information for San Diego! Food Bank update! San Diego Food Bank & Feeding America
I had the pleasure to learn more about the Food Bank’s services last week. I had the wheels in motion to become an Ambassador and share how we can help others with food insecurity, which is now higher than ever.
Here is a little bit about San Diego and I am sure it is similar all over and you can reach out to your community to discover how you can contribute.
🥦1 in 6 San Diegans are food-insecure.
Now in the 3 weeks of March 2020 it increased by 65%.
🥦CalFresh aka Food Stamps or SNAP has changed their rules so you can apply with more ease and receive the maximum amount of $194 per month.
🥦Right now the San Diego food bank has enough food for 3 months. They are focused on the elderly with complementary deliver and drop off, day cares and school children who were receiving weekend meals are now receiving the entire week.
🥦Remember calling 411 for information? Now, in SD you can call 211 to get more information about social services.
🥦Another great option! Neighborhood distribution Program. Over 20-30 pounds of fresh produce per household and ANYONE is welcome, no income eligibility. Head here to get the schedule.
