SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., (KRON) — A Bay Area non-profit donates $28,800 to provide 10,000 emergency meals to the San Francisco Unified School District COVID-19 Response Fund. Moms Against Poverty announced Monday they will be contributing in order to help combat growing food insecurity in the community due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Bay Area families experiencing financial hardship pre-COVID-19, now have even fewer resources at their disposal,” Moms Against Poverty COO Ladan Judge said. “At MAP, we are pleased to support SFUSD, and address a public funding gap for emergency meal services for children living in food-insecure homes.”

According to SFUSD officials, providing meals during the closures cost the district $314,000 above and beyond federal reimbursements for schools. Emergency meals do not qualify for State and Federal reimbursement.
