Summer. The word alone makes many of us smile.

But for some families, summer brings nothing but worry. And this summer, as our community is still struggling with the aftereffects of the pandemic, our neighbors are also dealing with high inflation rates.

Kids have been home from school for months. Parents who were barely getting by before the crisis struggling with soaring rent, gas and food costs. They simply can’t afford to replace school-provided breakfasts and lunches – let alone buy groceries at all.

Right now, the demand for food is as high as it was during the pandemic. Support during the summer months also tends to slow down – but you can help. Your gift now will help make sure hungry families in San Diego County have enough to eat all summer long. Every $1 you donate will help provide 2 meals.

Please Help Us Stop Summer Hunger

You can also help by hosting a food drive, a virtual food drive, or volunteering at our Miramar or Vista warehouses. However you choose to help, your generosity now will help keep children and your neighbors in need smiling.

Give them hope and encouragement with your gift today … by putting much-needed food back on their tables.

Thank you for your support,

Casey Castillo
Chief Executive Officer
