Volunteers distributing food to children at an event.


SAN DIEGO & NEARBY ONLY - Help feed children facing food insecurity by operating a food drive in your community! Collect nonperishables like canned goods, pastas, cereals, rice, nut butters, etc. and we will come to you to pick them up!

You can approach school administration to start a collection at your school, talk to coworkers to round up donations at work, or ask a local store manager if you can put a donation bin by the register! We'll be happy to provide flyers or help you find other materials you may need.

All donations will be given to families with children receiving subsidized federal nutrition plans from their school. These groceries will relieve them of the extra burden they face during school holidays, like Winter Break, when they are not receiving free/reduced breakfasts and lunches. You can learn more about our mission and past work on our Facebook page (The FULL Project).

Running a food drive is a great opportunity to impact the community and it also can teach leadership skills to children, who gain a sense of responsibility from managing their own project. Whether you end up collecting 10 items or 100, your time and effort will be greatly appreciated by us and the families we serve. Please feel free to contact me with questions about our organization or how to start your own drive!
