Holiday's Hope Campaign
Holiday's Hope Campaign
The holidays are a time to be with family and friends, sharing stories, being grateful for all we have. For many families in San Diego County the holidays sadly are not filled with laughter. Instead, for 1 in 5 people facing hunger in our communities, including 1 in 4 children, the holidays are bleak.
Holiday Food Basket Program
Feeding America San Diego wants this holiday season to be full of hope for all families and you can help. The Holiday Food Basket Program includes all the special fixings for a holiday meal, including:
4-6 lbs of meat/protein
Cream of mushroom soup
The Holiday Food Baskets are distributed two times a year - Thanksgiving and Christmas – through Feeding America San Diego’s Mobile Pantry program, partner agencies and schools. Thanks to Feeding America San Diego’s access to donated and purchased food through the national Feeding America network, we are able to secure each basket for just $10.
Please help us bring hope to this year’s holiday season!
Sponsor a family $10
Sponsor a neighborhood $1,000
Sponsor a partner agency $5,000
If you would like to become a Holiday Food Basket Program Sponsor, please contact
Diane Woerner , Corporate and Foundation Relations Manager, directly at 858-452-3663 extension 127, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
