BeerBuzz Social San Diego is proud to partner with the San Diego Food Bank and their Food 4 Kids Backpack Program. The Food 4 Kids Backpack Program, established in 2006, provides weekend food packages to chronically hungry elementary school students from low-income households who are at risk of hunger over the weekend when free school meals are unavailable.
Every Friday afternoon students on the program are called out of class, often to the school nurse’s office, and discretely given a bag of food which is tucked into their backpacks. Each bag contains enough food to see the students through the weekend, and the discrete distributions remove the stigma that might be attached to the program.
