Creating Mission Moments in Our Community:

 Donating 1,000 Backpacks to low income kids:

During the month of August Mission Fed held a Back To School Drive to collect backpacks and school supplies for low income children in areas of San Diego. This week Mission Fed was able to deliver over 1,000 backpacks through SAY SD to students of the SDCOE to help them start school off on the right foot with essential school supplies. The generosity did not stop at just 1,000 backpacks- there were so many school supplies donated that local school teachers were able to come in and stock up on much needed supplies for their classrooms or afterschool programs.

Thank you to our partners at ABC 10, Boyer Moving and Quill for their donations and partnerships to help make this dream of filling 1,000 back packs for local students a reality!


Behind the Scenes: Your Mission Fed Moment

It takes teamwork to achieve success, just like with our new Mission Fed commercials. Our Multimedia Producer and Developer Robin M put together some awesome behind-the-scenes footage of how the commercials were made, and we’re using this video to intrigue our members, while asking them how the Mission Fed team worked behind the scenes to create their Mission Fed Moment. Members can share a photo and caption (50 words max) or a written submission (100 words max) telling their story. Watch the video and enter the contest here:
