Feeding San Diego has received a gift of $120,000 from Calpine, a California-based energy generator and provider of energy services. The donation will be used to help end hunger in the county as a result of COVID-19.

“Currently, one in six San Diegans are facing hunger due to COVID-19 and Feeding San Diego has significantly expanded services to address the need for food assistance throughout the county,” said Gavon Morris, chief development and marketing officer of Feeding San Diego. “Feeding San Diego is incredibly grateful to Calpine for their generous gift. Their contribution will play a significant role in helping us sustain our critical work throughout the crisis.”

Calpine’s gift to Feeding San Diego is part of a larger donation of over $500,000 to local hunger relief and nonprofit organizations in California in response to the pandemic.

Established in 2007, Feeding San Diego provides more than 26 million meals every year and partners with 300 local charities, schools, faith communities, meal sites and food pantries.
