Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Chula Vista

Total Budget: $600

Areas of Focus: Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: When combined with the generous donors to the Food Bank, support from Rotary will enable more than 200 CVESD students to be enrolled in F4KBP.


Through the San Diego Food Bank, the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program provides a weekly bag of food for local school children every Friday. The bags of food are designed to supplement the often limited food available on the weekends for these children who qualify for free and/or reduced priced school meals. CVESD has more than 52% of its students meeting the standard for free or reduced price meals. More than 200 CVESD students will participate in F4KBP this school year.

When combined with the generous donors to the Food Bank, support from Rotary will enable more than 200 CVESD students to be enrolled in F4KBP. This means they will receive a weekly bag of food plus a family pack once a month to see that they have the basic necessity of food to carry them through the weekend when school meals are unavailable. Because of the F4KBP, these local students will return to school nourished and ready to learn.

CVESD has students whose last full meal of the week is Friday's school lunch and then they go home to empty refrigerators and sparse cupboards over the weekend. These students often return to school hungry and unable to concentrate on learning or developing positive interactions with their peers and teachers. F4KBP relieves this situation by providing a weekly bag of food to students in need for 36 weeks during the school year. School staff identify and enroll students and distribute food weekly.
