Hunger… that’s all she thinks about during the summer months.

For 164,000 children in San Diego County, hunger consumes their thoughts when school is out. From September through May, they wake up every weekday morning knowing that at least they’ll have one or two meals at school, courtesy of the school lunch or breakfast program.

At the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, hunger is all we think about, too. In the summertime, we work harder than ever to meet incredible need in our community. Out trucks pick up good, fresh food and produce that otherwise would have been thrown away. Our volunteers and staff sort, package and distribute the food. Our partner agencies make sure the food gets to hungry families across San Diego County.

Your past generosity shows that you compassionately care about feeding our community’s hungry kids, which is why I’m asking for your help again. Will you help today? Every $10 you donate distributes enough food for 50 meals to children and their families in San Diego County. Your gift will help so much during these critical summer months!

No child should have worries like these. Together, we can help San Diego County kids make happier summer memories.

Thank you for caring,


James A. Floros, President & CEO
