They were also able to pack 180 bags of fresh produce for children & their families in the Farm2Kids Program, a ministry providing fruit & vegetables through local schools, and 190 bags of food for families involved in the MobilePantry Program which brings food to families with limited or no transportation and therefore can not get to their local food bank. Our students ROCKED the Feeding America warehouse.
Our Mission Adventures teams were able to experience the human side of things as our host church, fb church of chula vista, is a receiving and distributing partner for Feeding America. Every Wednesday and Saturday hundreds of families line up around the church and down the block to receive much needed groceries and supplies.
In all we were able to help feed over 1,100 families in San Diego and fight hunger and bring justice to those in need. With over 440,000 people going hungry each year in San Diego alone, the fight is far from over.
