Feeding San Diego is encouraging federal employees, federal contractors, and other San Diegans affected by the on-going partial shutdown of the federal government to seek free food assistance through its network of distribution sites across San Diego County. Approximately 150 of the distribution sites are operated by local charities and religious organizations who partner with Feeding San Diego, while the organization directly distributes food to the community at another 100 locations.

Federal workers or anyone in need can visit feedingsandiego.org/need-help for a clickable map of convenient locations. By clicking on a specific location, visitors can access hours, contact information, and any special requirements.

Any San Diegans not receiving pay during the government shutdown can also contact our CalFresh team to apply for additional food assistance in this time of need. CalFresh is a USDA nutrition program to provide families with money for groceries. To learn more and to find out if you are eligible, complete the online inquiry form.

To help Feeding San Diego continue our critical work and support families during this time of need, you can give online. These donations help provide fresh produce and groceries to San Diegans throughout the county. Thank you for your generosity and support.
