Volunteer at the SD Food Bank!

Help at the SD Food Bank! Just 20 minutes from UUFSD! It’s always from 6:00 – 8:00 PM – anyone over 7 years old can help! Mostly we just put food in boxes on an assembly line or bag fresh produce – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. In January we bagged 3,000 LBS of carrots – in JUST 2 HOURS!

This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help!

Openings in the 2nd and 4th Wednesday Mens Group

The goal of the Mens Group is to create an environment where men meet and relate to each other with openness and intimacy. We tell the stories of our lives as a way to introduce ourselves to each other. In our meetings, we might not talk about the meaning of life, but we do talk about what is meaningful in our lives. We allow ourselves to be vulnerable and see vulnerability as a strength, in a society where vulnerability is seen as a show of weakness. It allows us to grow spiritually. For more information please contact Richard Macdonald at MensGroup@uufsd.org
