- Feeding San Diego: This is one family’s story. Leo, Flora, and their three kids came to a recent distribution with our partner Support The Enlisted Project (STEP). Leo shared “I’m a retired marine. We live in Menifee. It was hard for me to accept help. I’m a 100 percent disabled vet, and it’s hard for me to get a job because I’m either in pain or have three to five appointments at the VA every week. For me, I’m living off my little bit of pension and disability, and even with that, we’re crunching everything. Energy prices are high, water, everything, and you have a family to feed. Before I was hard-headed in seeking help, but now we do need it because everything is just so expensive.” Leo thanks the donors that help his family through Feeding San Diego.

Youth and young adults are encouraged to create a video or visual art piece to raise awareness about the importance of COVID-19 vaccines. (San Diego County Library via Facebook)
