St. Michael's Food Group

Volunteers make daily pick-ups at 14 supermarkets for delivery to 10 different churches and organizations that feed needy families in Poway and San Diego. It is estimated that throughout the year the volunteers distribute more than 750,000 pounds of food to 600 families in need.

Help is made possible through the generous spiritual, financial, and material support given by the volunteers and parishioners of St. Michael’s Parish. For more information or to volunteer to help, please call the Parish Office.
