They are of the generations who fought wars, paid taxes and built this great country. Yet today, in their fragile senior years, 50,000 older Americans live in poverty in San Diego County. They are a proud generation who find it difficult to ask for help. Most suffer the shame and anxiety of living with hunger and food insecurity in silence.
Since 2006, The Angel’s Depot has provided free emergency meal boxes to senior citizens living in San Diego County, whose average income is $791 per month. When The Angel’s Depot reached out to educate and engage the community in helping to solve the senior hunger crisis . . . the community responded in force! Armed with hundreds of donors and a corps of volunteers numbering over 2,800 who are willing to lend manpower, the movement to strike out senior hunger has begun in San Diego County. Please join us in this noble effort. The action you take, is the difference you make. You can sponsor make a contribution from $25 to sponsor one meal box to $20,000 to sponsor all the meal boxes for one month.
The Angel's Depot is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, all donations are tax deductible.

In 2011, Janet Wilson became our first "Estate Angel" leaving over $99,000 to The Angel's Depot.
Janet's generous gift helped fund the move into a larger warehouse space allowing for more seniors to be served every month. Janet's generous spirit made a huge impact on many seniors in need. We are also grateful to Barbara & Joe Barreras, her dear friends, who helped her make this happen.
