Food pantries in San Diego.

If you need food for you or your family in San Diego, there are dozens of locations to call or stop by at for help. A listing of food banks, pantries, and distribution centers are listed below. Many of them are run by charity organizations, or even churches in the region.

Most of the pantries in San Diego provide free or low cost food and meals. However they can also be a great place to call for information on other assistance programs, whether financial programs or not. Many centers can also offer referrals to local charities and non-profits, as well as to the state of California and federal government assistance programs such as CalFresh or WIC.

Typically anyone can get free or low cost food, meals or general support from the center, regardless of a family’s income. If a pantry or soup kitchen can’t meet the applicant's needs, then a referral is available. Many will also provide clothing, household products, and free Thanksgiving or Christmas meals. Rarely will anyone be turned away from a food pantry in San Diego.
