Families come in all shapes and sizes at the Food Pantry. Some are grandparents raising their grandkids. Some are single parent households or even two parent households. Some are elderly on fixed incomes, or extended families with 3 or more generations living together. But there’s one thing these families all have in common. With San Diego rents among the highest in the nation (average $2917/month per rentcafe.com), electricity rates the highest in the U.S. (thanks, SDG&E), and ever-rising food prices, people earning minimum wage or less cannot afford to provide nutritious food for their families.
We had a large crowd the SummerFest Community Concert series event and the performances were amazing and powerful. It was a truly delightful concert by splendid performers and very well organized between the co-producers Front Street Productions and La Jolla Music Society.
Our Summer Tardeada featuring La Rondalla de San Diego and Mariachi Victoria de San Diego was a hit! Produced by Louise Titlow and Angela Garcia-Sims, it took place out on the lower patio on July 29th was a real delight. Dancing was popular on our new portable dance floor with everyone enjoying the wonderful music, singing, and tasty food. Visitors and members alike had a great time and we're already planning to do it again next Summer. Thanks to all of the performers and everyone who worked so hard to make this event a success.
