The Old Mission Rotary Foundation awarded a grant of $3500 to International Relief Teams.  The funds will be used for their food backpack program.  Backpacks with food and snacks are distributed to school children in San Diego's underprivileged neighborhoods on Friday for the weekend.  Many young children eat breakfast and lunch at school but their families have very little money for groceries.
It is a sad commentary that International Relief Teams feels the need to distribute food to children in the richest country in the world.  Their core mission is to send medical teams and medicines to the most remote corners of the planet.
