Got Your Back, San Diego
Got Your Back San Diego is a weekend nutrition program for kids in North County public schools who have been identified as homeless under the McKinney-Vento act.
These children take part in lunch programs at their schools throughout the week. For most of them, the school cafeteria is their primary source of nutrition and many of them spend the weekend with little to no food. This is where Got Your Back San Diego and local school districts partner together to alleviate hunger amongst our children by sending them home over the weekend with backpacks full of nutritious food for them and their families.
This organization does not fill backpacks over the summer, however, they will take donations all year.
