Food and fund drives are a great way to fight hunger and raise awareness. Contact us today to let us know you want to host one for your organization, office, event or family.

Fund Drive

Instead of a food drive, try a fund drive with family and friends! It’s an easy way to make a difference without having to pick up and transport loads of food items.

Through our highly organized distribution model and relationships with hundreds of food partners, every dollar donated helps provide meals for people facing hunger. Funds are allocated to our critical hunger-relief programs, including School Pantry, BackPack, and Mobile Pantry.

You can start a fund drive as an individual or as a team. We make it easy for you! For additional information on fund drives, contact Charina Layman at or 858.452.3663 x155.

Food Drive

Gather your family and friends and start a food drive to help fight hunger. A tax receipt will be provided at the time of drop-off. For more information please contact our volunteer team at

Most Needed Items

With diabetes, obesity, and other preventable chronic illnesses on the rise, FSD is dedicated to distributing fresh, healthy food and incorporating nutrition education in all of our initiatives and programs. Food donations allow FSD to access a broader variety of food, such as canned meats, soups, fruits, and vegetables. These items are often difficult to obtain in bulk. FSD encourages food donations to be wholesome, minimizing empty calories and harmful ingredients.

  • Peanut butter
  • Canned tuna
  • Canned chicken white meat
  • Canned fruits in natural juices
  • Canned soup (chicken, tomato or vegetable)

No glass, please.
