Feeding San Diego’s new ‘Feeding Patients Program’ provides food to cancer patients and their families


(SORRENTO VALLEY) KUSI- In partnership with the San Diego Padres and Curebound, Feeding San Diego is announcing an important program that provides free food assistance to patients facing cancer in San Diego County. Previously known as Groceries4Good, this new program, called Feeding Patients, provides a drive-through food pick up at different locations for patients and their families.

The first distribution will be held on Thursday, May 13 from 10 AM to 12 PM at Pechanga Arena San Diego. The second is on Saturday, May 15 from 9 AM to 11 AM at California State University San Marcos. People in need who live in these areas can register to receive approximately 50 pounds of nutritious food. Following these initial distributions, Feeding Patient pickups will be hosted specifically for participants of the program.

KUSI’s Kacey McKinnon spoke with the CEO of Feeding San Diego, Dan Shea about the new program. “Recognizing that the need to provide groceries to our cancer fighting community is much larger than originally imagined, we look forward to the continuation and growth of the Groceries4Good program as Feeding Patients,” said Dan Shea, CEO of Feeding San Diego. “Feeding San Diego serves people in need all over the county, from students to seniors, and we are honored to be able to provide help to those who are battling for their health.”
