This community moment is brought to you by Mission Fed.
Did you know that when children participate in programs that provide them with food for a weekend, they will experience increased levels of self-esteem, improved behavior at school, better academic performance, and increased interest in their classes and other school activities?
That’s why we’re asking you to join Mission Fed and support the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank‘s Food For Kids Backpack Program.
Throughout September, visit any Mission Fed branch to get your apple lapel pin, while supplies last, for a suggested $5 donation to the Backpack Program and help nearly 2,000 children in San Diego county who face the threat of hunger every day.
Your $5 donation will provide a child with a weekend backpack filled with food and helps fill the weekend gap for children who struggle with hunger. To learn more about the Food For Kids Backpack Program, or to make a donation, visit Sandiegofoodbank.org/foodforkids
And thanks, Mission Fed!
