Club launches program to address food insecurity and create connections in times of social distancing
San Marcos, CA – Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos has launched From Our Home to Yours, a new program connecting businesses with families facing food insecurity during these times of social distancing. Businesses and their employees can “share a meal” with a local family by donating a kit that includes one of their favorite recipes and the non-perishable ingredients required to create it for a family of four, along with a short note of encouragement.
“Our goal for this is to simply let neighbors help neighbors,” said Dorinda Miller, Vice President of Philanthropy. “San Marcos is a kind and caring community and we are grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from so many businesses so far.”
Escondido-based PRAVA Construction Services was the first business to join the initiative, donating over 25 kits to support the effort.
“Here at PRAVA, we are dedicated to building lasting memories and partnerships within our community. When we had the opportunity to bring our people together in support of this initiative, it gave us a chance to band collectively as a cohesive team, even though most of us had been working from home. We look forward to future endeavors, and a long lasting relationship with the Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos!” said Victoria Adams, PRAVA’s Director of Business Development.
Any meal kits donated are distributed to families on Fridays during the Club’s free supper program, which has served over 20,000 meals to families during the COVID-19 crisis. In addition to the weekly meal program, the Club has also pivoted in-person programs to Virtual Clubhouse, offering free activities for youth and families to participate in from home.
