The South Bay Food Pantry is a major success story for First UU San Diego. From its start in December 2020, the Pantry has grown from feeding 20 to 30 people each week to 400 households, about 1200 people, every Saturday. That’s an 800 percent increase! This expansion has been driven by the need in the community, and supported by volunteers from both church campuses, and many of our clients. We have much to be proud of, and much to be grateful for.

“Many hands make work light”….I learned this mantra as part of my son’s Cub Scouts experience but seems to hold very true for how the team that supports the Diaper Pantry (the little sister of the Food Pantry).
Each Sunday, our doors at the Diaper Pantry at the Chula Vista campus open for one hour and typically serve families with a combined total of 60-80 children. In addition to diapers, families are provided with diaper wipes, menstrual hygiene products for females in the household, and often, bread that has been donated by a local bakery.
