The San Diego Food Bank's Food 4 Kids Program Fundraiser

San Diego Food Bank Food 4 Kids Backpack and Food Drive

 
The San Diego Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids Backpack Program was launched in 2007 to provide food to help chronically hungry elementary school students get through the weekend. Every Friday, eligible kids receive a backpack with child friendly items such as peanut butter, pop-top canned goods, cereal, juice boxes, fruit cups, raisins, pudding cups, granola bars, shelf-stable milk and macaroni and cheese tucked inside.
 
These kids receive free or reduced cost meals while school is in session, but do not have food available on the weekends or school holidays for themselves and their siblings. Food 4 Kids provides food directly to them, without requiring their parents to receive a referral to a local food pantry, pick up food at the pantry or prepare it at home. 
  
Charitable donations have tumbled with the economic downturn, and hunger is still a serious problem. Those of us who love food and view it as a pleasure are in a position to ensure that the children of our community don’t go hungry. 
 
With that goal in mind, the local food community is coming together to raise funds for the San Diego Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids Backpack Program.   The program costs a mere $6.00 per week per child to fund, and a donation of $250.00 will fund a backpack for a child for the entire 36 week school year.  
 
During the 2008-2009 school year, the program served just 200 children in eight schools throughout San Diego County. In part as a result of last year’s fundraiser, the San Diego Food Bank is now serving 525 children in 19 schools and is looking to expand even further.   Giving what you can afford will help us continue to grow the program and provide needed nourishment to children!
 
Please also attend our food and backpack drive at the Little Italy Mercato on August 21, 2010, and dine at one of the thirty restaurants supporting our fundraising efforts by donating one dollar per order of a popular dish from their menu throughout the month of August! For more information on these events, please see www.aliceqfoodie.com or www.sandiegofoodstuff.com
 
Thank you so much for your contribution!
