Feeding America San Diego Hunger-Relief and Healthcare Partnerships

With growing understanding of the link between hunger and health, Feeding America San Diego has developed strategic partnerships with healthcare providers. Feeding America San Diego and 2-1-1 San Diego partnered with Sharp HealthCare’s Care Transition Program (CTI) at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in February 2016 to provide healthy food to those being discharged from the hospital. In coordination with care provided by Sharp Care Transition coaches, Feeding America San Diego provides food boxes to patients who are identified as food insecure during the hospital discharge process. Additionally, individuals are referred to the Feeding America San Diego CalFresh Outreach team to be screened for eligibility and directed to other food distributions and 2-1-1 San Diego for additional services to meet their needs.
