Hand Up Food

Did you know that 500,000 of our neighbors are without a proper meal on any given night in San Diego? Help us fight food insecurity in San Diego!

As part of our Hand-Up Food Pantry, the Corner Market is just as it sounds - a small market designed to create a shopping experience for clients who need extra support with their groceries each month.

Our Hand-Up Food Pantry provides food relief to 800 families monthly throughout San Diego County. Using a point system with no money exchanged, clients are able to select fresh produce, meat, bread, and non-perishables in a store setting on their own accord.

To join the fight against hunger you need to:

  • Engage clients with excellent customer service skills
  • Inform clients of pantry rules and regulations
  • Keep accurate records of pantry use
  • Keep the pantry area clean and in compliance with food safety standards
  • Pass a background check (conducted and paid for by JFS)
  • Be 18 or older
  • Attend a Volunteer Orientation and Interview
  • Be able to transport yourself to and from the JFS campus

By joining the team you are:

  • Gaining customer service skills
  • Assisting in a critical area of need
  • Giving training on nutrition and meal planning
  • Committing to a volunteer term of three hours a week (1 shift) for three months
