Hunger Free Kids COVID-19 Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
The Hunger Free Kids COVID-19 Response Fund is part of the Hunger Free Communities Support Fund. This fund is dedicated to creating equitable access to food assistance throughout San Diego County by providing small capacity building grants for infrastructure or outreach to make it easier for individuals and nonprofits to access federal nutrition programs. San Diego Hunger Coalition works directly with community members and organizations to steward your donations to where they are most needed when they are most needed.
The Hunger Free Kids COVID-19 response fund supports San Diego School Districts and community-based nonprofits in responding to the needs of San Diego students and their families facing foods insecurity during COVID-19. For many families, school meals are essential in making ends meet during tough times. With schools closed during the pandemic, this vital flow of nutritious meals into our hunger relief system slowed to a trickle.
