Moving Forward Together
High Holy Days Community Drive

Every year during the High Holy Days, our community supports San Diegans experiencing hunger through our annual community food drive. As increasing inflation continues to affect our community, more of our neighbors are facing food insecurity every day.

According to the San Diego Hunger Coalition, 1 in 3 people in San Diego County are nutrition insecure—that’s more than 30% of all San Diegans. As the critical need for nutrition continues to rise, we’re counting on your support to meet the urgent needs of our community.

Every day, JFS is on the frontlines providing essential meals, financial assistance, and vital community resources. Together, we can ensure our neighbors receive the critical support they need during these challenging times. Join our annual High Holy Days Community Food Drive by dropping off your food donation at one of our participating locations or at our JOAN & IRWIN JACOBS CAMPUS at 8804 Balboa Avenue.

For questions, please contact Maiya Haberman, Community Engagement Coordinator, at [email protected] or (858) 637-3264.
