San Diego Food Bank Launching Program to Add More Food Distribution Sites – NBC 7 San Diego

In order to help more San Diegans in need right now, the San
Diego Food Bank is launching a new program that will launch additional food
distribution sites to reach more households who need the assistance.

Thirty new “Super Pantries” will help the food bank serve
more residents with its added distribution sites, the San Diego Food Bank
announced. It will use its non-profit partners’ locations to distribute food at
least three times a week.

Since the coronavirus pandemic started, more residents have
required assistance getting by as the virus’ grip on the economy led to
thousands of job losses nationwide.

Before the pandemic, the San Diego Food Bank helped about
350,000 residents a month but since the virus began to affect the county, the
non-profit has served approximately 600,000 residents monthly as of late.

As a result, lines at local food distributions grew
increasingly long as residents sought help during these challenging times.

To remedy that, and to allow San Diegans easier access to food
distributions, the Super Pantries will cut down lines with their additional
sites.

“We have a lot of people that are hurting right now, a lot of people in need and we’re stepping up to the plate with the support of all these great donors and volunteers,” said James Floros, San Diego Food Bank’s President and CEO.

Each participating Super Pantry locations will receive a
grant of $20,000 to help them remain open.

The Super Pantries will be located throughout the county from
Camp Pendleton to San Ysidro to rural East County, according to the food bank.
The new program will begin to serve families in the county on July 1.
