Why We Fight:
The Joan Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice is hosting acclaimed expert and peace builder Chris Blattman to discuss his new book, Why We Fight: The Roots of War and the Paths to Peace.

In these challenging times, both internationally and domestically, Blattman’s insights are of critical importance for all those who want to bridge divides and keep social and political peace.

September is San Diego Hunger Awareness Month!
In support, Mission Fed is partnering with the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank for the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program. This program provides food packages to chronically hungry elementary school students for the weekend when free school meals are unavailable.
Did you know that when children participate in programs that provide them with food for a weekend, children experience increased self-esteem, improved behavior at school, better academic performance, and increased interest in their classes and other school activities? Currently, 67 San Diego County elementary schools are enrolled in the Food 4 Kids program which feeds 3,300 students each week at schools throughout San Diego County.
- The ask is for a donation of $7 which provides a food-filled backpack to a local child for the weekend.
- Anyone can donate: we encourage everyone to contribute.
- If you are interested there are several options to donate:
On behalf of Mission Fed, thank you for helping raise awareness and donations for this important cause. Together we can make a difference in the fight against child hunger.
Thanks this week go to Louis L, Mary H, Chris B, Carl L and the Mission Fed Team for this week’s submissions!
Please pay it forward.
