Aztecs Rock Hunger, October 17 - November 9

Aztecs Rock Hunger

Did you know nearly 470,000 San Diegans have little to no food at home and don’t know how they’ll get their next meal? For many of those families, that next meal will come courtesy of the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank. Support this incredible organization by contributing to Aztecs Rock Hunger by November 9 and help SDSU reach its goal of collecting 250,000 pounds of food. Need some perspective? Just $1 will help the food bank supply six pounds of food for a family in need.
