As the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect the health and income of local families, SBCS volunteers are critical to ensuring that San Diegans in need have access to healthy food.
If you are looking for a way to give back during this difficult and uncertain time for many, consider volunteering to package and distribute food at one of our three weekly food distributions.
SBCS is accepting in-kind donations of nonperishable food items to help provide for families and individuals in need. To arrange a donation of food, please contact us at (619) 420-3620.
