About this Collection
Junior Optimists from Canyon Crest Academy and Torrey Pines High School, sponsored by the Del Mar - Solana Beach Optimist Club, prepared nutritious lunches for the homeless and distributed them during the last weekend in January as part of the national Souper Bowl of Caring (sm) event held at this time of the year. The club members prepared 225 lunches containing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, granola bars, fruit and fruit snacks, and bottled water. This annual project is one of many community service activities performed by the Junior Optimists and their sponsoring Optimist Clubs. Go to http://www.optimistdelmarsolanabeach.com/ for more info.
There are thousands of homeless people in the area, many don't have resources available to even feed themselves. Many are women and children, less fortunate families, and veterans. There is great unmet need to feed these individuals with nutritious meals. The Souper Bowl of Caring event provided a good opportunity to make a small contribution to this need. Some 225 lunches provided a nutritional meal during this event.
