Have you completed your good deed for the day?

Some of you reading this may not have a good deed planned for the week — but that is where I can help. The 1st Annual Fire House Food Drive is occurring now through July 30.  All 45 fire stations in the city of San Diego are collecting food in their effort to help support San Diego’s individuals and families who suffer from food insecurity.

The Food Bank provides food for 22,000 meals per day. Thus, having people swing by the stations and contribute something from their pantry is vital to helping the Food Bank maintain this level of support for the community. Your good deed can be accomplished with ease by stopping (at the fire station), dropping (food in the collection barrels) and talking (about how good you feel about the good deed you just accomplished).

Listed below, is a list of items most needed at the San Diego Food Bank. Thank you in advance for making San Diego’s hungry individuals and families the recipient of one of your good deeds today, this week, or this year.

  • Canned meat — tuna, chicken, turkey, beef, stew
  • Plastic jars of peanut butter
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits
  • Cereal
  • Bags of rice
  • Bags of beans
