This year for our Holiday Reception we asked attendees to bring non-perishables for the San Diego Food Bank. Below is a letter from Food Bank President James Floros on the impact our members and their donations had.
On behalf of The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, but more importantly, those we serve, thank you for once again partnering with the San Diego Food Bank for the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Holiday Party! Your commitment to fighting hunger is evident: you donated a total of 255 pounds of food that will allow the Food Bank to provide 213 meals to those in need. That is a wonderful impact! Please extend our gratitude to all those involved.
One in six people in San Diego County face the threat of hunger every day. With the addition of the North County Food Bank, we now provide emergency food to 370,000 children and families, active duty military, and fixed income seniors living in poverty every month. You make it possible for them to bridge the gap between their limited income and their daily dinner table.
Your continued support is vital to our success and we deeply appreciate it. For volunteer opportunities, as well as information on our programs, please visit our website at
