Feeding San Diego a hunger relief and food rescue organization, continues to hold large-scale food distributions throughout San Diego County to address the continued need for increased food assistance.
The next event will be Tuesday, March 9 at Pechanga Arena San Diego from 10 am. to noon at Pechanga Arena San Diego, 3500 Sports Arena Blvd., San Diego.
Earlier large-scale distribution efforts, including one held at LEGOLAND California Resort served more than 3,000 people.
Pechanga Arena was also the location in February for a series of four distributions held specifically for those in the hard-hit hospitality industry, which served more than 9,000 people.
Almost a year into the pandemic the need is still present and large-scale distributions will continue with Feeding San Diego focusing on areas most in need.
Those who attend will be given information about Feeding San Diego’s additional sites they can access year-round.
“Unfortunately, we will continue to see increased need for food assistance long after everything reopens,” said Dan Shea, CEO of Feeding San Diego. “It’s our responsibility to continue to serve as a lifeline for anyone facing hunger, even after we start to feel a bit of a return to normal.”
At the drive-through distribution volunteers will place food directly in the trunk, always keeping a distance of 6 feet.
All attendees are asked to wear a mask and must register via the link here: https://feedingsandiego.app.rsvpify.com/.
These emergency distributions are in addition to the ongoing distributions the organization holds weekly, which can be found on Feeding San Diego’s Find Food map (feedingsandiego.org/findfood).
