School breakfast and lunch, summer meals, and afterschool supper are just some of the ways we can end child hunger.

The San Diego Hunger Coalition presents Hunger Free Kids: Opportunities by District to End Child Hunger. This report is the first to take a deep look at San Diego’s efforts to feed more kids through federally funded child nutrition programs.

Whether you’re a school district, a nonprofit organization, or a concerned citizen, the Hunger Free Kids Report and the San Diego Hunger Coalition are here to help you bring more free meals to kids in your community.


School District Profiles


Hunger Free Kids Methodology (click for more)

Twenty-five school districts are profiled in the full Hunger Free Kids report. These school districts were selected because more than 50% of their students are enrolled in the Free & Reduced Price Meals (FRPM) program.

The school district analysis sections describe the successes and opportunities for both school districts and community-based organizations to feed more children and youth identified through our research and knowledge of each district. Click here to view the methodology.
