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



Current 'Community Care' Needs: (updated 02-06-19)

There is a lovely single Mom in Rancho Penasquitos that needs a nearly new queen mattress (or full size) with a floor frame. Two of her 4 children would be sleeping with her so queen size would be best but she would accept either size.  She also needs size 5 or 6 diapers for her youngest daughter.

A Letter of Gratitude from a local Mom  

Dear Families,
I wanted to share with you how much your generosity is appreciated during the holiday season. As a parent, you want to be able to provide for your child. I can’t tell you how hard it was on my pride to find myself in the situation of struggling just to have basic needs meet. Then you add on holidays and instead of joy, it feels like the breaking pointRead more
