"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Community Care

FFCC is about connecting our community to be a help and an encouragement to each other. FFCC reaches over 490 local families in need, each month with food resources. Because of this relationship, we are often made aware of a special need that a family or individual in our community may have. We will share these needs with you here and in our bi-monthly newsletter and if you are able to help please respond. 

Contact Becky Palenske for more information or to respond to a need ffccsdlocal@gmail.com

Diapers in size 5 and size 6 are requested by 3 different local families.

Very gently used baby items needed for a newborn coming in a few months to a Rancho Bernardo family. Items in nearly new condition would be appreciated.

Holiday Giving- Adopt-A-Family

December is here and many anxious parents are wondering how they will ever be able to give their children gifts for the upcoming December holidays or just make it through the month with all the expenses!  

FFCC has gathered anonymous wish lists to share with supporters. These lists include sizes and types of clothing needed, as well as a few household items, and/or gift cards for groceries and gas and a few fun items that the children might like. If you would like to join in on this Holiday Giving once again, please email me with the family size wish list that you think would be a suitable match.  

If shopping is not your preference, there are other ways to help families:

  • payments on utilities or assisting with rent. 
  • car repairs.  Families need their cars to get to work and be self-sufficient.
  • gift cards for Walmart, Target, Uber, ARCO gas. 


A check payable to FFCC can be your holiday contribution if you prefer this type of giving. 

FFCC, 12463 Rancho Bernardo Rd, PMB #158, San Diego, CA 92128

Thank you for considering the Holiday Giving Project. The deadline to turn in gifts is December 13.  Contact Becky to arrange the drop-off - ffccsdlocal@gmail.com.
