Can you imagine not knowing where your next meal will come from, or eating food every day that you know lacks the nutrition you need? Food insecurity is one of the worst human experiences. Now, imagine bearing that burden while also trying to care for your own children and loved ones.
We often learn about crisis flashpoints across the world, and our hearts are burdened. However, we sometimes neglect to see the needs right down the street. Now more than ever, there are people in our communities who need not just food, but a reminder of the hope that they’re not alone or forgotten.
That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to create the Love Does Mobile Food Truck program with our friends, offering consistent meals to families struggling with the challenges of transitional housing or resettling to San Diego as refugees. We work alongside our remarkable friends at the Monarch School (students who are homeless or impacted by homelessness), Urban Life, and the Alliance for African Assistance. We’d love for you to join us as we increase our outreach, offering hope to our neighbors.
