Due to the current COVID-19 emergency, Community Through Hope transformed its food bank, in partnership with the San Diego Food Bank and Feeding San Diego, into an emergency response food bank and center designed to take on the challenges of providing the South Bay with much needed nutrition, diapers and emergency health bags. CTH has been humbled by the opportunity to serve and has found invaluable support from the faith-based community. This page is dedicated to the volunteerism and effort put behind CTH response to the crisis. COMMUNITY OVER COVID
