Emma went to school hungry today … again.
Because she’s hungry … Emma has developmental issues that affect her ability to learn.
Because she’s hungry … Emma has low immunity to common childhood illnesses and is often absent from school.
Because she’s hungry … Emma is nearly twice as likely to need counseling for depression or anxiety.
Emma is just one of 163,000 children in San Diego County who face hunger and the risks associated with it. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “The children are our future.” But what does the future hold for children like Emma?
The sad fact is, hungry children have diminished chances of graduating high school, attending college, and becoming successful adults who contribute to our society.
With your continued support, the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank is giving children a better chance at a brighter future. Your support provides hungry children the food they need to become leaders our country can depend on.
Because they are hungry, children like Emma need your help today. Together, we can fight hunger.
