On Saturday, April 20, students at Earl Warren Middle School in Solana Beach participated in volunteer activities at Feeding America San Diego. More than 15 students, who are also Kids Korps USA volunteers, participated as a part of the generationOn campaign “What Will You Bring to the Table?” The national campaign calls upon America’s youth to bring their ideas, creativity and passion to the table to help end childhood hunger. Other groups include a local Girl Scouts troop and students from Alpine Elementary School. As a part of the day of service, San Diego youth packed and sorted healthy fresh fruits and vegetables to distribute to kids in need through FASD’s BackPack program and Farm2Kids program, which help feed 16,300 local kids each month.
