In March of this year, a study conducted by the Food Research and Action Center concluded that nearly one-in-five people in San Diego struggle to put food on the table. According to San Diego Unified's Office of Children and Youth in Transition, the department assists nearly 5,000 students without a home each year.

Tomorrow, more than 600 of those students and their families will have food put on the table for them at the House of Blues in downtown.

Sponsored by Feeding America San Diego and The Rose Foundation of Rancho Santa Fe, the event will provide plated meals, as well as live entertainment from local gospel group Eddie Baltrip and Fulfillment, as well as North-County singer-songwriter Alex Woodard.

“It is so important to us that children and their families can celebrate the holiday without worrying about how they are going to get food on the table,” stated Jennifer Gilmore, executive director of Feeding America San Diego. “We are so grateful to the House of Blues for letting us host this event again and are thrilled to be able to provide meals to local families in need.”
