Barrio Logan MAD Food Distribution Program

Barrio Logan, San Diego, CA
Scope of Work
HUGE shout-out to Urban Corps’ own Marissa Cassani (and many more) for their work establishing the Barrio Logan Maintenance Assessment District (MAD) COVID-19 Food Distribution Program.
What started as a desire to simply serve others during COVID-19, has become a distribution program providing crucial food aid to Barrio Logan residents in need.
Each week the food distribution program, provides food, as well as COVID-related supplies, to residents at approved pick-up locations and, to-date, over 1,000 residents have been served.
Community involvement has been significant and, despite the need to quickly organize and build, the distribution program has seen an influx of both organizational and community support, ranging from donations to volunteers.
Though pandemic-related uncertainty persists, it’s amazing to see communities unite to serve residents who, honestly, could just use a little bit of help.
