We are so grateful for all the organizations and companies who so generously support the San Diego Project Grace meal and services! Without their assistance, we would not be able to continue serving the community.
A special thanks to SDG&E Sempra Energy who awarded Shoreline Community Services with a Seasons of Giving Grant to support our holiday meals and give aways! SDG&E also had ready and willing volunteers there to support us this last Wednesday at our Thanksgiving Meal! Thank you so much!
In addition to this support, we had amazing support from the community and Pacific Beach united Methodist from 10 donated turkeys to the overwhelming show of volunteers to serve the meal and greet our guests, we were able to provide a loving and warm environment for our guests to enjoy the delicious Thanksgiving feast prepared by our very own Chef Ben. Thank you to all who chose to be involved! This was a wonderful event! We can not count the number of times we heard such warm and sincere gratitude from our guests.
From all of us at Shoreline, we thank you with all of our hearts!
A Special Shout Out to Our Regular Weekly Sponsors
Our Incredible Host and Fifth Week Sponsor
None of our services would be available to those in need without the generous support of Pacific Beach United Methodist Church. This awesome congregation opens its doors every Wednesday of the year to host the San Diego Project Grace meal, the UCSD free student run medical and dental clinics and the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine’s acupuncture clinic. In addition to this incredible generosity, the congregation also sponsors the meal every time a fifth Wednesday occurs in a month, regularly gathers donations for our guests, provides food donations and provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to remember every year! One of the comments I regularly receive from volunteers and guests is that “this is the way church should be” and we agree with all our hearts! Thank you Pacific Beach United Methodist!
Our Incredible Weekly Food Donor
Trader Joe’s here in Pacific Beach is a wonderful supporter of the San Diego Project Grace meal. Every week Trader Joe’s donates fresh fruit, breads and other items to help cut the cost of providing this meal and help supplement what we are able to offer our guests. We can not say enough about this generosity. There are many places to do your grocery shopping in San Diego but we hope you will consider the heart behind this awesome store! Thank you, Trader Joe’s!
First Week Sponsor Every Month
The San Diego Center of Tzu Chi USA sponsors the San Diego Project Grace meal on the first week of every month. Their incredible team of volunteers makes a fresh vegetarian meal, celebrates birthdays of the month with a song, cake and a small gift and offers a clothing give away. This is one of the most popular meals of the month. Tzu Chi San Diego brings table cloths, decorations and soothing music that adds a touch of comfort to the meal. Thank you Tzu Chi San Diego for the warm welcome you offer our guests to start off every month!

Last but Certainly Not Least
We have to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible contributions of our awesome volunteers! Whether a volunteer from our hosting church or one of our sponsors, a volunteer from our homeless guests or a community volunteer seeking to make a difference, this work would not be possible without you. Nearly 8,000 meals are served every year because of the work of these incredible people and organizations. Together we are making a huge difference for those without enough to eat in our community.
