Canyon Crest Academy Junior Optimist Club members participated in a successful food packaging event on Nov. 14 making “Lunches for Bunches”. CCA Junior Optimists packaged 75 bags for residents at Valley Vista Permanent Supportive Housing to enjoy. Each bag included fresh fruit (orange or banana), nuts/trail mix, fruit snack, a bag of chips, granola bars, and applesauce. The residents at the Valley Vista facility previously experienced homelessness and food insecurity, so these bags mean a lot to them. Canyon Crest Academy Junior Optimist Club’s efforts are part of PATH San Diego’s “Lunches For Bunches” program. The CCA Junior Optimists were happy to be able to volunteer and help fight food insecurity.
