TEAMS FOR GOOD Corporate Volunteer Shift

Nov 14, 2019 - ongoing

Teams for Good is an opportunity for organizations and groups to unite against hunger by supporting Feeding San Diego through volunteerism and giving!

Teams for Good includes a two-hour corporate volunteer shift at Feeding San Diego, during which time, your team will help glean, sort and pack food before it is distributed to those in need. By participating in Teams for Good, your company can make a profound difference in the lives of the one in eight San Diegans facing hunger.

Thanks to your contribution, Feeding San Diego will be able to deliver two full trucks, one full truck, or a half truck of food (depending on the impact level you select) to people facing hunger. Your support helps ensure that every child, family, and senior facing hunger in our community can access fresh, nutritious food.
