Help Us End Hunger This Holiday Season

November 5, 2014 - Serving Seniors

The holidays are swiftly approaching and with this time of year comes an abundance of food, celebrations, and special time with loved ones. Sadly, this is not the case for the majority of the seniors we serve. Many don’t have family or support and some even wonder when and if they will see their next meal.

Nobody should ever go hungry in a world where there is more than enough to go around. It is especially devastating for seniors who are such a vulnerable population. The folks we serve are typically on a limited, fixed income and they struggle to make ends meet. They are often forced to choose between rent and food. These seniors simply don’t have the funds to live a healthy, fulfilling life on their own. That is where we step in and try to bridge the gap.

We provide warm meals to seniors 365 days a year at our downtown Wellness Center and various sites throughout San Diego County. These balanced meals provide warmth and nourishment while our Wellness Center provides a second home and family. Our services are critical for the well-being of the seniors who utilize them.

We have launched our Fill A Plate campaign to ensure no senior goes hungry this holiday season.

Did you know it only costs $2.50 to provide a senior with a warm meal?  That is less than one latte at Starbucks! Our goal is to fill 100,000 plates this holiday season and throughout next year. We know we can do it with YOUR help.

There are a few ways you can help us reach this ambitious goal:

1.) Spread the word! Share our YouTube videos, blog posts, Facebook updates and tweets amongst your circles. The click of a button increases awareness and can translate to filled plates. Let’s see more sharing and less hunger.
2.) Donate now. If you choose to give a gift right now you will receive a coupon to the Broken Yolk Café as a thank you from one of our community partners.
3.) Visit Azucar in Ocean Beach and make a donation. Azucar is a Cuban style patisserie and community partner helping us end hunger.

We are confident that with your help we can feed all of the hungry seniors in San Diego this holiday season. Thank you for your support and for helping a senior in need. We couldn’t do what we do without YOU.
