Community Service Committee Sorts 3,500 Pounds of Food
BOMA San Diego's Community Service Committee volunteered their time on April 20th in an effort to support the San Diego Food Bank’s fight against hunger. Led by Steph Kozlowski of Automated Controls, committee members were briefed by a food bank employee on how to screen and sort a plethora of food items. During the committee’s two hour shift, members sorted approximately 3,500 pounds of food.
The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank serves as the largest nonprofit food distribution center in San Diego, and provides food for an average of 370,000 people in San Diego County. Partnering with 350 nonprofit organizations, they work to acquire, store, and organize food for soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers, low income daycare centers, or directly serve families in need throughout our community.
The San Diego Food Bank depends on volunteers to keep their mission going. Volunteering is an opportunity to give back to your community, and participate in a team building activity.
