Grand Opening Party for Food Pantry for Kids
It's All About the Kids® Foundation is Fighting Against Hunger in Barrio Logan
On May 10, 2018, IAATK opened a weekly Food Pantry and are now helping kids and their families from King Chavez Primary Academy, King Chavez Preparatory and Parker Elementary. Families now visit the Food Pantry and choose what food they would like to take home. The children help their parents decide. Volunteers load trucks, set up the food, check in families, assist in choosing the food and experience the joy of helping fight hunger. Monthly sponsors include Attorney King Aminpour, the San Diego Food Bank, Panera Bread, Village Mill Bakery, and Albertson's.
On June 21, 2018, from 3pm-6pm, IAATK will host a Grand Opening Party for the kids and families from the Feed The Kids Program at the Food Pantry during the weekly distribution. Along with taking home bags with over 35 pounds of food, the children will receive a stuffed animal, books, games, food and desserts. Sponsors include Attorney King Aminpour, the San Diego Kings Basketball Team, GBOD Hospitality, Village Mill Bakery, Petsmart, Danielle Carleton Photography and Ivan S Harris Photography.
IAATK is also kicking off the Food Pantry Fundraising Campaign. IAATK is raising money to buy a 10' truck to transport food and 40' shipping container to store the food. Solar power is planned for powering the cooling system inside the shipping container. Sponsor logos will appear on the truck and shipping container. Community partners include local shipping companies and University of Iron. With these additions, IAATK will be able to expand the program and serve more kids and their families.
