Feeding America San Diego
First Class Petty Officer Association Food Drive - Barbeque Days

Food Drive, 10-14 JUNE 2013

From 10-14 JUNE 2013, CDS-1 First Class Petty Officer Association Sailors from USS BENFOLD, USS RENTZ, and USS RUSSELL raised the awareness of child hunger plaguing our local underprivileged communities amongst their respective commands. Together, our Sailors combined their efforts to gather a total of 309 lbs of food – translating to 257 meals. All proceeds were donated to Feeding America San Diego that will in turn be distributed to underprivileged families.

Barbeque Days, 14 JUNE2013

On 14 JUNE 2013, Sailors from USS RENTZ and USS RUSSELL’s First Class Petty Officer Association followed up their command-wide food drive by volunteering at Feeding America San Diego in the Barbeque Days Program. The program strives to offer food and resources to children and families at outdoor events throughout the summer. Working together, our Sailors successfully compiled over 600 BBQ Days bags consisting of potatoes, onions, cucumbers, and avocados, for distribution to children facing hunger throughout San Diego County.
