As you know, people are hurting here in North County. San Diego County’s unemployment rate was 13.9% in June. This is down from 15.2% in May, but way higher than last year’s rate of 3.3%. This means many of our students and community members are without work. Palomar Faculty Federation, in association with Council of Classified Educators, North County Labor Alliance, San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, and Feeding San Diego, are doing our part to help our community by distributing food every other Saturday on our main campus. The food distributions follow strict COVID-19 guidelines and are contact-free.

  • At each food distribution Feeding San Diego provides a box of produce and a box of non-perishable food for each family.

  • We’ve hosted three food distributions so far (on 6/27, 7/18, and 8/1) where we distributed food to over 1300 families.

  • In the last two food distributions we added children’s books to the distribution thanks to generous donations from the San Diego Council on Literacy.

  • Our next food distribution is Saturday August, 29th, at Palomar College on W. Mission Road, San Marcos, Lot 12 (enter at Comet Circle).

  • The food distributions are open to all students, faculty, staff, and community members.  There is no reservation needed, just drive up!
