WHY IT MATTERS:
Due to the economic fallout of COVID-19, the hospitality industry in San Diego County is taking a major hit. Prior to COVID, the hospitality industry in San Diego employed more than 200,000 people, which accounted for 1 in 8 jobs. Before the second round of closures, 77,000 of these people were already unemployed.
Feeding San Diego is experiencing a 50% increase in the need for food assistance. Hundreds of thousands of people are facing hunger, many for the first time.
It will take all of us, coming together as a community, to change the trajectory of this crisis. So let’s spread love San Diego!
