Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank

The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank is the largest independent hunger-relief organization in San Diego County, providing food to 370,000 people every month through more than 400 nonprofit partners and 200 direct distributions. The Food Bank's mission is to provide nutritious food to people in need, advocate for the hungry, and educate the public about hunger-related issues. As a very lean and efficient organization, 93 cents out of every dollar donated to the Food Bank goes directly to programs and services. Last year, the Food Bank distributed more than 28 million pounds of food - 34% was nutritious fresh fruits & vegetables. More than 20,000 volunteers work hard to sort, pack and distribute food, as well as assist with administrative projects and events.
