The Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank are hosting a “drive-thru” food distribution for low-income families and seniors affected by the Coronavirus crisis.
On Friday, April 17, the Food Bank is partnering with Grossmont Center to host a mass “drive-thru” food distribution for 1,000 families living in the East County. If you are one of the first 1,000 people to arrive at Grossmont Center that morning, your car will be served. Load in will begin at 5 AM. Entrance to this event is over by the Target Parking Structure and participating cars will be cued down Center Drive. (See map below)
All mass food distributions are “contactless” to ensure the safety of the volunteers and clients at both locations. Attendees will remain in their cars, and volunteers will place groceries in vehicle trunks.
Special thanks to the volunteers who supported all three previous mass food distributions. Volunteers, including the Labor Council and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), have done an amazing job helping ensure that the distributions run smoothly. We expect this to continue at Grossmont Center.
Each family attending the mass food distributions will receive approximately 30 pounds of food and products including toilet paper, paper towels and baby wipes.
If you and your family qualify and need assistance getting groceries, come out to pick up an emergency food package, while supplies last. Limit one per vehicle. Distribution will start at 9 AM.
