Fight hunger in your community! Take the CalFresh Challenge

Challenge yourself to live off of the average daily San Diego County CalFresh (food stamps) budget per person of  $4.18/day or $20.92/5 days between May 8 - 12. Make an even greater impact by fundraising during the Challenge to help more families access the food they need. Fundraising can take place between May 1 - 15.

The San Diego Hunger Coalition is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. All donations are tax deductible. The organization's federal tax ID# is 30-0507718.

Here's how to get started

1) Register for the Challenge. If you haven't already registered for the 2017 #CalFreshChallenge please do so here before you start your fundraiser. 

2) Click the gray "SET UP MY FUNDRAISER" button above to get started. You will then be prompted to either "Join a Team" or to "Start Your Own Fundraiser."  If you wish to join an existing team click "Join a Team" and then search for the name of the team of the team you want to join.

If you want to start your own fundraising page click "Start Your Own Fundraiser." You will be prompted to set up your page. Once your fundraising page is set up you can remain as an individual fundraiser or invite people to join your team to help you reach your fundraising goal.

3) Start fundraising! Fundraising is easy! For tips and tools, please check out the 2017 CalFresh Challenge Fundraising Toolkit.

This year, participants who raise $100 or more toward the CalFresh Challenge will receive a San Diego Hunger Coalition tote bag. Top fundraisers will also receive prize packs with gifts from our generous community partners.



If you only want to donate to an individual or a team participating in the #CalFreshChallenge – click the orange "DONATE TO A FUNDRAISER" button above. Then select the name of the individual or team you want to donate to from the drop down menu. You do not need to create your own fundraising page to donate.


Whether you raise $25 or $250 it makes a real difference in the lives of our community's most vulnerable populations.
