Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Friends & Family Community Connection (FFCC) is a 100% volunteer non-profit that provides grocery supplies on a regular basis to over 800 families in the Poway, Carmel Mountain, Rancho Bernardo, 4-S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, and Saber Springs communities. With the lay-offs and shut downs due to COVID-19 they are now serving close to 1200 families.
