For 32 years, the Fallbrook Food Pantry has served the community by providing healthy food to thousands of families. In 2022, over 1.3 million pounds of food were distributed to 1,402 households and a total of 4,302 individuals. The Pantry is blessed with the services of 356 volunteers who help to operate the daily functions of the pantry.

Additionally, nutrition and occupational courses are offered in the Sousa Family Learning Center. These courses include diabetes prevention and management, healthy food preparation, nutrition, English as a second language, and courses for high school students. The pantry slogan is "When you're hungry, nothing else matters."

This free group meets every Monday, 10 a.m. to noon at Living Waters Church on Reche Road. New members are welcome.
