In San Diego County, one in six children face hunger — over 120,000 children. Thousands of youth lose access to nutritious school meals over the summer months when school is out. Feeding San Diego is working to meet the increased need by hosting 26 summer meal sites to supplement its on-going food distributions throughout San Diego County. In addition, Feeding San Diego hosts Summer Fun Café sites in partnership with San Diego Unified School District and Special Regional School Break Distributions once a month, June through August.
The Fuel for Summer campaign provides critical support for summer hunger-relief programs to ensure that children and families get the nutrition they need to live healthy and productive lives. Funds raised to-date are attributed to widespread community support and dedicated partners:
“We would like to sincerely thank all of the people in the community who supported our Fuel for Summer campaign thus far,” said Vince Hall, CEO of Feeding San Diego. “Thousands of children have access to free and nutritious food this summer, thanks to the generosity of our donors and partners.”
