Dear CTH Community,

Each week, cars line up outside our warehouse before it opens for the drive-thru food distributions. Even on days with 90-degree temperatures, our volunteers show up to guide the drivers through the parking lot of our warehouse in Northwest Chula Vista. They heft 40-pound bags and boxes of nutrition into the vehicle trunks – food that will last the week for many families.

Hard to believe it has been six months since COVID-19 stay-at-home orders began! In that time CTH has humbly taken on the task of providing emergency nutrition to the residents of the South Bay.

The result? As of this week, our volunteers and partners have distributed over 3 million pounds of nutrition – from rice and cereals to canned goods and fresh potatoes, lemons, apples and more. This number is sobering because the need is so great. CTH is now a Super Pantry in partnership with the San Diego Food Bank and a Regional Distribution Hub for Feeding San Diego. Together, we can continue to make a difference.

Many seniors are in need during this time. CTH has directed 1/5th of its resources to senior services, from nutrition and hygiene products to emergency needs, in partnership with Community Congregational Development Corporation (CCDC).

CCDC is seeking to better understand the needs of seniors in our community. Please take 5 minutes to help them gather data to inform their planning. Simply click on the link below to take the survey and provide input. Thank you for your time.
