Our Partnership with
Feeding San Diego
We believe in building stronger, healthier communities through giving back. Feeding San Diego creates a comprehensive approach to hunger-relief through four initiatives – Feeding Kids, Feeding Families, Feeding Seniors, and Feeding Heroes. Individual programs within these initiatives support the immediate and long-term needs of the community.
Year round, a percentage of annual net proceeds from our Everlasting Joy MacroBar goes to Feeding San Diego. Feeding San Diego is a branch of the national organization, Feeding America, working to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks. Their projects include:
Provides meals to improve childhood wellness through partnerships with local K-12 schools (School Pantry) and community sites.
Provides meals to families across the county through community partnerships and direct-to-client distributions, including families in rural areas and college partner sites.
Provides meals to military families through School Pantries, military-focused partner agencies, and special direct distributions.
Provides seniors with healthy food through partnerships with senior housing facilities, community centers, and produce via Meals on Wheels East County.
With each purchase of an Everlasting Joy MacroBar, you help feed people in need in the San Diego area.
