Got Your Back San Diego is a weekend food assistance program developed specifically for children who do not have reliable access to a sufficient amount of affordable, nutritious food. They fill backpacks with two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, and a few healthy snacks, enough food to sustain a child throughout the weekend. Backpacks are given to children at school to take home for the weekend.
