RANCHO SANTA FE — Feeding America San Diego received a $233.57 donation from the R. Roger Rowe Elementary School student government and school families.
The money was raised through a Sweet Things Yogurt Shop fundraiser in which the students and their families participated. Feeding America San Diego will use the donation to help the BackPack Program that provides low-income elementary students with a bag full of child-friendly food plus fresh fruit or vegetables every Friday.
“Feeding America San Diego provides food to more than 201,000 San Diego County children annually,” said Larry Sly, executive director, Feeding America San Diego. “With this donation, the Rancho Santa Fe students are helping to ensure that other children have enough nutritious food to eat and help them succeed in school. Thank you to Rancho Santa Fe student government and all the students and their families that participated in this wonderful fundraiser.”
