Fighting hunger

One in five children lives in a food insecure household, or families that have difficulty providing enough food for all their members because of a lack of resources. In an average elementary school classroom in San Diego, almost six children could be food insecure.
Of San Diego’s 3.1 million residents, more than 446,000 live in poverty and nearly a third of those are children.
