FEEDING SAN DIEGO'S KIDS

Children who are hungry do not learn well in school. Our “Feeding San Diego’s Kids” is a weekend food assistance program for schoolchildren who have been identified as needy or homeless. With more than 22,000 homeless children in San Diego, our goal is to pick up where the school lunch program leaves off by providing a consistent source of nutritious food for Saturday and Sunday. We currently provide weekend backpacks filled with food for needy and homeless schoolchildren (and their families) at four elementary schools.
