North Coast – Feeding Hope

Judy Stevens, Jane Valentine and Lory Sheldon, volunteers of the Assistance League of North Coast, organized their membership in supporting the North County Food Bank of San Diego’s “Food 4 Kids Backpack Program.” In a little more than one month $4,100.00 was raised which will provide food to fill 687 backpacks for the rest of the school year for children who are deemed “chronically hungry”. The children stop by their schools’ office on Friday afternoon and pick-up  kid-friendly food to ensure that they will have nutritious food to eat on weekends. Vanessa Ruiz, VP of Operations for the San Diego County Food Bank, said, “We are so appreciative of the generous support we have received from the Assistance League of North Coast to help the Food Bank sustain this critical program and feed hope in the North County community.”
