Of those funds, $15,050 were contributed by Sempra employees, and The Sempra Energy Foundation matched these contributions 2:1 for an addition $30,100 in funding.

Partners for Hunger Relief bolsters food recovery efforts throughout San Diego, serving a broad base of agencies and people. Through this special program, the San Diego Rescue Mission helps feed thousands of people each year. Over 100 grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, universities, hotels and hospitals contribute to feeding the homeless through the program every year.
