Community Helping Hands Food Drive

The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter Day Saints’ congregations throughout San Diego County are teaming up with the Boy Scouts of America San Diego-Imperial Council’s Scouting for Food campaign to collect nonperishable food donations for the San Diego Food Bank and our North County Food Bank chapter.

Most Needed Food Items include:

  • Canned meat and fish
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned soup
  • Peanut butter
  • Oatmeal and cereal
  • + more!

Donations can be dropped off at designated locations (listed below) throughout the month of March, and will end with a big culmination event on Saturday, March 30.



LDS Church – Community Helping Hands Culmination Event on Saturday, March 30

Address: 6767 51st St. San Diego, CA 92120

Those who plan to drop off donations at the culmination event are encouraged to volunteer and help sort donations.
