About Us
Fallbrook Food Pantry has served low income and disadvantaged families since 1991, when the Fallbrook Ministerial Association created Fallbrook Community Project. In 2005, our name was changed to Fallbrook Food Pantry to more accurately reflect its purpose.  It is the largest agency of its kind in the unincorporated areas of Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow, De Luz and Pala.
There are opportunities for everyone to participate in this long standing community effort, either by volunteering on site or as donors.  We rely heavily on donations throughout the year and hold two fundraisers each year to offset operating overhead: 5k Thanksgiving Hunger Walk/Run and Annual Golf Tournament.  Please let us know if you would like to receive our Quarterly Newsletters which highlight donors, volunteers, and upcoming events.
