About Us

What is Got Your Back San Diego?
Got Your Back San Diego is a weekend food assistance program for children attending San Diego County schools, whose main source of nutrition is cafeteria food Monday through Friday but, apart from school, lack a reliable food source on Saturday and Sunday. As a result, many of these children must endure entire weekends with little to nothing to eat.

Every week, we fill backpacks with six nutritious meals, enough food to sustain a child throughout the entire weekend. Also included in each backpack are interactive homework assignments that teach kids about food and making healthy food choices. One Thursdays, the full backpacks are then delivered to the schools in Oceanside, Vista and Carlsbad. On Fridays,the schools distribute them to the children before they leave for the weekend. The following Monday, the children return the empty backpacks, and the process begins again, every week.

Our Mission
Our mission is to remain steadfast in the fight against childhood hunger in our local communities by bringing a reliable source of nutritious food into the homes of kids who struggle with food insecurity. By partnering with local schools, our goal is to increase public awareness of food insecurity and help those children who suffer from the many challenges and disadvantages of not having a consistent, reliable source of healthy food.

How can you get involved?
Our hope is to bring the Got Your Back San Diego Project into every school in San Diego County. But we can’t do it alone. No one can
