This summer, Feeding San Diego will host 26 distribution sites for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), a critical part of its summer hunger-relief programs. This program provides critical support throughout the summer months to ensure children are getting the nutrition they need to grow and thrive.  

In San Diego County, one in six children face hunger — over 120,000 children. Many lose access to nutritious school meals over the summer months when school is out. Feeding San Diego is working to fill that gap by offering these free summer meals and snacks to any children between one and 18 who participate. There are no forms to fill out in order to receive food.

In addition to regular food distributions, the following is a list of Feeding San Diego’s 2019 Summer Food Distribution Sites:
