“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hunger affects thousands of people throughout San Diego County. According to the San Diego Hunger Coalition, more than 494,000 San Diegans face food insecurity, including 164,000 children. Every day, these San Diegans do not know how they will get their next meal.
