The LJDC Monthly Meeting
Sunday, September 12, 2021
2 – 4:30 pm

PROGRAM: The organization Feeding San Diego will give us a presentation on Food Scarcity in San Diego.  

Here is some of their history:
As one of the newest hunger-relief organizations in the Feeding America network, Feeding San Diego’s first distribution was held on October 9, 2007 in the parking lot at San Diego Rescue Mission. Several weeks later, San Diego County suffered from disastrous firestorms that displaced hundreds of thousands of individuals. In the first week of the fire with only two employees, Feeding San Diego secured and delivered 515,000 pounds of emergency supplies, including food, water, and other grocery items, to evacuees, firefighters, and volunteers. Now Feeding San Diego has about 70 employees, supported by donations, including $100,000 from Jeff Bezos.

Special thanks to Red Cross, Salvation Army, Father Joe’s Villages, Catholic Charities, Rock Church, San Diego Rescue Mission, Homeland Security, FEMA, City of San Diego, County of San Diego and other nonprofit agencies who supported our efforts during the firestorms and early stages of our development.

In February of 2008, Feeding San Diego moved into a 30,000 square-foot warehouse to better serve families in need. Later in 2010, the organization relocated to a new 50,000 square-foot distribution center in Sorrento Valley and quickly emerged as the leading hunger-relief organization in the county the following year. In September 2020, amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, Feeding San Diego moved into a new facility with enhanced capability to serve the community.
