The Santee Food Bank has been an integral part of the community since 1983, providing local residents in need with temporary food assistance. We are a wholly independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that partners with various regional resources to serve approximately 400-450 individual families and senior residents each month. Our mission is to alleviate food insecurities within the City of Santee.
The Santee Food Bank is staffed with 25-30 core volunteer workers who all generously give of their time and talent. Collectively, these volunteers donate an amazing 16,000 hours a year of their time. Never in the history of the Santee Food Bank has anyone ever been paid to serve; the organization is a true all-volunteer community effort. All monetary donations support the mission of the Santee Food Bank.
