Currently over 500 EUSD students and their families are experiencing food insecurity and are receiving hot lunches and breakfasts from EUSD at Ocean Knoll Elementary on Mondays and Wednesdays. TOGETHER, we have given out over 4,000 Bags of Food, 500 Smart & Final Gift Cards, and 600 Loaves of Bread to each of these families. We have raised almost $70,000 and the need continues.
As we mentioned last week, we have partnered with Flippin Pizza-Encinitas, furthering our efforts to support our local businesses while simultaneously bringing awareness to the Be Strong/Sé Fuerte Fund. Flippin reported that last week was a HUGE SUCCESS - they are still calculating the proceeds, but they ran out of dough and had a line out the door for take out (6 feet apart)!!!
