Help me reach my goal!

Your support means that fewer San Diego County residents will go to bed hungry.  Join me in the fight against hunger in our region!  See more

THE STORY:

More than 423,000 San Diegans are food insecure, meaning they don't have enough to eat on a daily basis.  20% of them are children!  San Diego is the fifth richest city in America, there should be no hunger in our community.  Hunger has many different faces - students, working parents, college kids, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, immigrants... hunger has no prejudice.  As a working single mother, I know that it can be hard to make ends meet.  Federal food assistance programs like CalFresh ("food stamps") or Free and Reduced Price Lunch at school are important ways to keep low-income individuals and families fed during their time of need.  I invite you to join me in the fight against hunger in San Diego and donate to the San Diego Hunger Coalition or spend a day walking in the shoes of someone who is hungry by taking the CalFresh Challenge next week.  These people have $4.27/per day to feed themselves - that's less than the coffee we buy at Starbucks.  Take the CalFresh Challenge with me - it will open your eyes and your heart.
