The annual Cash4Food campaign, sponsored by the Community Christian Service Agency
(CCSA) has been extended through August 31, 2015!
CCSA provides services to low income singles, couples, seniors, families and those with special needs as well as the homeless population in San Diego County, many of whom are children and veterans. CCSA services include supplemental food, clothing, counseling and referrals. CCSA has provided these services since 1972 and served over 25,000 San Diego County residents in 2014!
The CA$H4Food fund complements the generous donations of food we receive from our member churches and other sponsors and is used to procure supplemental food items over the year to ensure we can provide a consistent, nutritionally balanced grocery supplement to our
clients each month.
All funds donated to Cash4Food are used exclusively to procure FOOD. CCSA has built relationships and maintains the required certifications to procure food from the San Diego Food Bank and Feeding America. Buying food through these agencies maximizes the Cash4Food fund since we can often procure needed food items significantly under the cost of normal retail stores; our average is approximately 19 cents per pound.
CCSA is recognized for excellence in managing and providing services to clients and is a distribution point for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) sponsored by FEMA and approved by San Diego County Health and Sanitation Departments.
You can provide donations directly to CCSA, by mailing a check to: CCSA San Diego, 4167 Rappahannock Ave, San Diego, CA. 92117 or online via our website: www.ccsasandiego.org. If mailing a check, please annotate Cash4Food in the memo line.
This is an excellent way to help your San Diego neighbors in need. We ask for your financial support to meet our goal. and please share this opportunity with others. You can follow CCSA activities on Facebook; make a post or leave us a comment. We’d like to hear from you!
