To feed the hungry; to advocate; to educate

FASD sponsors 25 large-scale Community Food Distributions every month. These distributions are held throughout the county to serve high-need and underserved communities. For each distribution, FASD delivers an average of 10,000 pounds of food, which translates into 8,000 meals for 400 to 600 individuals and families. Via a network of 175 partner agencies, FASD delivers food to neighborhoods that have a high incidence of poverty but relatively low levels of emergency food assistance. In addition to daytime distributions, FASD coordinates efforts with partner agencies to ensure that working people have access to food distribution in the evenings and on the weekends.Program:BackPack ProgramBudget: $235,300Category: Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/OtherPopulation Served: Children Only (5 - 14 years) Program Description: The BackPack Program meets the nutritional needs of hungry children over weekends and school holidays when other food resources are not readily available. Nearly 2,000 food-insecure children at 10 low-income San Diego County schools are provided child-friendly, nutritious, and easy-to-prepare food and fresh produce every Friday to help them meet their nutritional needs through the weekend and over holiday breaks. Each child in the program typically receives an easy-to-carry bag filled with nutritious items when leaving school. Children place the bags into their backpacks as they venture home for weekends or holiday breaks. Without the BackPack Program, too often these children would have absolutely nothing to eat. FASD plans to partner with recreation and youth centers during the summer to continue serving children through BackPack when school is not in session.Program:Farm2Kids ProgramBudget: $109,230Category: Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/OtherPopulation Served: Children Only (5 - 14 years) Program Description: Through the Farm2Kids Program, FASD delivers fresh produce directly to 6 low-income schools throughout San Diego County for after-school distributions to 4,000 children every month. As they leave school, children are provided a selection of fresh produce that they can take home to their families. This program also promotes the benefits of healthy eating for children by providing the educational content and tools necessary to support the positive development of the whole child. Through nutrition education they seek to raise awareness among children and parents of the role fresh fruits and vegetables play in a healthy, active lifestyle. FASD plans to partner with recreation and youth centers during the summer to continue serving children through Farm2Kids when school is not in session.Program:Mobile Pantry ProgramBudget: NaNCategory: Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/OtherPopulation Served: Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General Program Description: FASD has launched a new program to reach underserved areas that lack food pantries and soup kitchens. The Mobile Pantry Program represents a very significant expansion into rural areas that enables FASD to address substantial unmet needs in their community. They anticipate distributing up to 2,080,000 pounds of food and grocery products in underserved areas per year through the Mobile Pantry Program. he environmentally-friendly Mobile Pantry Vehicle was built to FASD’s specifications and includes several large refrigerated sections for increased distribution of fresh produce and perishable sources of protein. This new program is helping FASD reach people with limited access to emergency food, challenges with mobility and transportation, and very high need. They have established 3 mobile pantry routes to serve the rural areas in North and East San Diego County, with a special emphasis on reaching the disproportionately food-insecure and underserved residents of local Indian reservations.

A wage hike is very hard to take away, but bonuses and profit-sharing can disappear very quickly in hard times...More people are realizing that bonuses look like raises, but really aren't.
