On behalf of our members, employees and volunteer board of directors, Mission Fed’s support of local non-profit organizations addressing the needs of our community due to COVID-19 impact continues.
Last year alone, Mission Fed members and the San Diego community raised and donated a total of $680,342 for local non-profit organizations. These donations supported and helped build resiliency throughout our region to fight against heart disease and provide hope, meals, and shelter to San Diego’s men, women, and children in need through COVID-19 relief efforts.
Mission Fed bolstered the generosity of members to empower local charities in their fight against hunger throughout San Diego and shined the fundraising light on The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, San Diego Rescue Mission, and The Salvation Army of San Diego County. The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County, partnering with nearly 400 nonprofit partners with feeding programs to provide nutritious food to individuals and families in need in communities throughout San Diego County. The San Diego Rescue Mission lovingly addresses the needs of men, women, and children experiencing homelessness by providing a holistic approach to rehabilitation and recovery. The Salvation Army is dedicated to Doing the Most Good, working together to holistically meet human needs without discrimination.
