Food Assistance and Distribution

In partnership with community members, faith-based partners, Smart Food Foundation, Feeding San Diego and the San Diego Food Bank, SBCS offers healthy food distribution on a weekly basis throughout Chula Vista and connects families in other parts of the County with additional resources.

Please note: Food distributions have been modified to a drive-thru format as a special precaution as we do our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus at this time.
