Just 20 minutes from UUFSD. It’s always from 6-8pm – anyone over 7 years old can help! Mostly we just put food in boxes on an assembly line or bag fresh produce – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. In June we bagged over 9,000 lbs. of oranges and potatoes that were given to those-in-need the very next day – in JUST 2 HOURS! This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help! For more information and to Register you MUST contact Sara Ohara for the special UUFSD Group code: email@example.com

In June our UUFSD members and others bagged over 9,000 Lbs. of oranges and potatoes! These were delivered to those-in-need the very next day. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when parents bring their kids. If they learn at this age that it’s important to help others, they’ll remember forever…THANKS all!
