The Art Pratt Foundation of Old Mission Rotary Club presented a grant in the amount of $5,614 to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank on Tuesday, October 8.  The President and CEO, James Floros, visited the club to accept the funds which will be used to purchase an electric pallet jack.  He explained that of the San Diego County's 3.2 million residents, 450,000 people face food insecurity every day, including 177,000 children.  
The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and their North County Food Bank chapter feeds 350,000 people every month in partnership with 500 nonprofit community partners that operate feeding programs.  Their nonprofit partners include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, low-income daycare centers, senior centers, faith-based organizations, schools, and day centers for the elderly and disabled.
