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

Holiday Giving- Adopt-A-Family

If you would like to support a family in need at Christmas time here in the North County area, FFCC would love to work with you.  The scope of support can range from providing Walmart or Target gift cards to providing Christmas gifts of clothing/shoes and other items that the family would request anonymously. It is a wonderful opportunity for our community to be a blessing and encouragement to others.
