HOLIDAY CROCKPOT DRIVE

DONATE NOW

IT’S MORE THAN JUST A CROCKPOT…

It’s a warm meal for a child during the holidays.

 

It’s a way to cook, stretch a dollar, become more sustainable, and bring a family together over dinner.

Hunger in San Diego

1 in 3 San Diegans is nutrition insecure* meaning they cannot provide 3 nutritious meals for themselves or their family per day. This is an increase from pre-pandemic years.

  • 31% of the total San Diego population is nutrition insecure
  • 39% of the child population is nutrition insecure

With the high cost of living in San Diego, many families rely on hunger relief assistance even with both adults working.

  • Make meal preparation quick and easy when working multiple jobs
  • Provide a way to teach children how to cook safely
  • Cook larger quantities of food creating additional meals
  • Provide a variety of meals using SNAP approved ingredients
