North County Cares is a program designed by the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce, the Vista Chamber of Commerce, and the San Diego North Economic Development Council. The purpose of the program is to support both families in need and North County restaurants who have borne the brunt of the impacts of necessary social distancing orders.

Your donation in any amount will go toward purchasing gift cards at participating Oceanside and Vista chamber member restaurants. The gift cards will be distributed to Vista Unified School District, Oceanside Unified School District, and other organizations directly feeding those who need it most. The organizations will use the gift cards to provide meals to families in need in our community.

If either your organization serves North County families and would like to be considered to receive support or if your restaurant is a member of the Oceanside and Vista chamber and would like to participate, please contact

All donations are fully tax-deductible.
