Moving Forward Together

High Holy Days Food Drive

1 in 6 people in San Diego County don’t have enough to eat

The Hand Up Food Pantry at JFS provides nutritious meals to more than 900 households each month. Many of the people we serve are older adults, military families, and unsheltered San Diegans.

Every year we turn to the community, and every year you deliver. You can make a difference today by donating healthy, nonperishable food. Together, we can fight food insecurity and ensure everyone in our community has access to wholesome meals.

Your donation gives families more than food – it offers a path forward
