THE STORY:

Hello friends and colleagues! Vi here with Lil' Ricky where we are happily fed and content and full, ready to focus on work, play, and especially for Lil' Ricky, chasing Buster. But we're the lucky ones. 


Did you know that more than 1 in 6 people in San Diego County are food insecure? 


That means 1 in 6 of our fellow neighbors lack access to enough affordable, healthy food. That means that 1 in 6 individuals are likely stressed over their next meal and/or not getting enough nutrients to be healthy. And in turn, that means 1 in 6 people are NOT able to focus on work, learning, or playing. That's a lot of people. For children, the numbers are even higher: nearly 1 in 4 children in San Diego County are food insecure. 


But you know what helps? Calfresh. This federal program provides supplemental support to get healthy food, so individuals can focus on other things like their job, paying utilities, and being there for their kids. 


So here's the ask - Please support Lil' Ricky and me in our fundraiser to help reduce hunger. 


Donate to our CalFresh Challenge fundraiser for the San Diego Hunger Coalition. I will be doing the 1-day challenge on Monday, May 8 by eating only what I can buy with $4.18, the Calfresh average, daily allotment in San Diego County; Lil' Ricky will not be participating. Thanks so much in advance for your support! 


With love and hugs - Vi & Lil' Ricky
