Food for Kids Backpack Program

Haight’s Professional Team Member contributions toward our 80 Acts of Kindness campaign have greatly increased our overall efforts to reach the firm’s goal for 2017. Christina Zacevich of the firm’s San Diego office donated to the Food For Kids Backpack Program (www.sandiegofoodbank.org/programs/food-4-kids-backpack-program-2/) which provides weekend food packages to chronically hungry elementary school students from low-income households who are at risk of hunger over the weekend when free school meals are unavailable. Every Friday afternoon students on the program are called out of class, often to the school nurse‚Äôs office, and discretely given a bag of food which is tucked into their backpacks. Each bag contains enough food to see the students through the weekend, and the discreet distributions remove the stigma that might be attached to the program.
