Dear CRC Supporter,

Hunger is on the rise in our community. 1 in 7 adults and 1 in 5 children struggle with food insecurity. Many of our neighbors are seeking help at the food pantry for the first time.

Join us this September for Hunger Action Month as we stand together with our partners at Feeding San Diego to fight hunger. Here are five ways you can help during Hunger Action Month.

Thank you for helping us end hunger in our own community.
