    San Diego Hunger Coalition
    The San Diego Hunger Coalition works with 150+ partners across the county on an ongoing mission to make sure locals have enough to eat. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization’s mission work is clearer than ever. The SDHC said it is working to expand access to food assistance in San Diego County and will be updating the public on those efforts via this website. You can donate to the SDHC here, or learn about other ways to help through the organization here.

Volunteer Opportunities
According to San Diego County, there are several local organizations currently in need of volunteers. You can check out those via the JustServe website here, and also by emailing COVID19-volunteers@sdcounty.ca.gov. Current organizations running projects in need of volunteers include the Encinitas Union School District’s COVID-19: Bags of Love, and the San Diego Unified School District, which needs helping hands to bag and distribute food to families in need while schools across the county remain closed

To help the Food Bank, you can 
donate here online, or you can partake in a “Virtual Food Drive” in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, here. You can also call them at (866) 350-3663. According to the San Diego Food Bank, every $1 that is donated can provide five meals to San Diegans in need.
