Fill Backpacks with Food for Got Your Back, San Diego

Details: Bring your group to the warehouse and help stuff about 180 backpacks with non-perishable food items.  All materials provided, you simply need to show up and be willing to work and stuff backpacks.  The backpacks are given out on Fridays to students identified as “homeless” by the school system.  The students receive free lunches during the school week, but your hands-on work will ensure that they and their families have a well-nourished meal for the weekend.

  • Tuesday Nights, 7pm – 8:30pm
  • Child Friendly – Yes! Ten years and older
  • Please wear closed-toed shoes

Optional but greatly appreciated:  Your hard work is most appreciated, but canned foods are always appreciated.  The most needed items are: canned beans, mac-n-cheese cups, 12 oz jars of peanut butter (no glass), canned tuna and Progresso soups.

Above and beyond:  Monetary donations of any amount can be put toward buying a pallet of food, whether it’s macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, or another food that goes into children’s backpacks every week.  The average cost of a pallet is $300 dollars.  If this interests you, please click on this link.
