Bodega Day

Bodega Day

Every Thursday at the Casa is “Bodega (Grocery) Day.”  Families obtain a ticket from the Social Service office, and bring a bag to fill.

In many cases, this bag of groceries may be all the food the family has for the week.

The families typically receive:

  • A kilo of beans
  • bodegaday22 or 3 loaves of day-old bread
  • Rice
  • Miscellaneous cans of food, depending on what’s been donated
  • Maybe small potatoes or squash
  • Backyard fruit that’s been donated

It’s a treat for the visitors to the Casa to receive fresh fruits and vegetables!






Please help us feed the poor of Tijuana on Bodega Day each week!

  1. Make a monetary donation, which helps the sisters buy beans, rice and canned goods.  See the “Donate” tab above.
  2. Drop off unexpired cans of food or bags of rice or beans, at the Casa. Proteins such as canned chicken and tuna are especially helpful.
  3. Drop off food at our USA donation site: St. Brigid’s Parish Hall, 4735 Cass street, San Diego 92109, Monday – Friday 8 AM to 4 PM
