Downtown Homeless Street Feedings Education Campaign Launched

October 8, 2015 The San Diego Union-Tribune recently posted an op-ed regarding the negative consequences of homeless street feedings. Many groups and individuals come downtown to provide homeless people with food, blankets, and other items, however, service organizations are best able to distribute food and donations. Interested groups and individuals can help these organizations without the unintended consequences. As a result, the Downtown San Diego Partnership's Clean & Safe program has created the San Diego Meal Service Program, a centralized community platform designed to connect public feeding groups with local service providers.
