SAN DIEGO — It’s All About the Kids, a food pantry that serves families from over 45 San Diego schools, needs help keeping kids well-fed during the coronavirus pandemic.

In March, the pantry served more than 850 families — about 4,000 people. That number has doubled in the time since, as more people in the community feel the economic consequences of COVID-19. Organizers don’t want to turn people away, but as of Wednesday morning, they had a waiting list of 350 families.

The organization’s drive- or walk-up services are available in Barrio Logan every Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m. The pantry hands out fresh bread and produce, along with other items.

It’s All About the Kids is also partnering with several San Diego companies: the Batta Fulkerson Law Group and Henebery Spirits are ach matching $5,000 in donations, Pouring for a Purpose at Miss B’s Coconut Club in Mission Beach — in partnership with Bootstrap Kobmucha — is donating 100% of their sales of the drink to the charity. And Rubicon Deli, which already donates bread each week, is donating a meal for every picnic box ordered on their catering menu.
