Food Donations

Serra Mesa Food Pantry (SMFP) depends on the generosity of individuals in the community, like you, to provide items for people in need and much less fortunate than most folks. Since its opening, May 2010, Serra Mesa Food Pantry has helped 250 to 300 people per month primarily from the Serra Mesa area. 


We accept all non-perishable food items in unopened containers. 

Making Financial Donations


Serra Mesa Food Pantry is also happy to accept financial donations. All Financial Donations assist our food distribution, in covering overhead costs, purchasing food, and assisting in expanding our services.

While SMFP works on obtaining 501(c)3 tax exempt status from the IRS, we are currently working with Mission Village Christian Fellowship.  They have been kind in donating space for the food pantry as well as accepting cash (check) donations on our behalf which will be tax deductible.  Should you like to send a check, please make it payable to "Mission Village Christian Fellowship" and be sure to write "for SMFP" in the memo area.  The money will then be disbursed to the Food Pantry.  Checks can be mailed to:
