Many thanks to these fine folks for generously supporting our work!

As a small organization with diverse experience and long-term vision, we pledge to use all of the resources we receive with efficiency and thoughtfulness. We believe that we can all participate and we can all give. Please consider making a financial contribution to enable us to advance the community-based response to food security in San Diego.
