San Diego Chiropractor, Marc Gottlieb sponsors a gathering to help feed the homeless in San Diego. Marc is calling it a 'Hunger 2 Help Party' named after the non-profit who started the project in San Diego. The party will be held on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012 from 11am to 3pm at 3110 W. Canyon Avenue, San Diego, CA 92123. This year marks the second year anniversary for The Hunger 2 Help organization in serving the San Diego Homeless burritos and bottled water every Sunday. “Several years ago I met a neighbor of mine who wanted his children to learn morals, ethics, and an appreciation for what they had. In November of 2010, Hunger 2 Help was created by Michael & Mehrnaz Johnson and a group of 12 year old boys who started making breakfast burritos out of their kitchen every Sunday morning for the homeless in San Diego,” states Marc Gottlieb.
When hearing about this Dr. Marc was compelled to get involved and help. Marc Gottlieb and his family started donating monthly to the cause by giving a monetary donation to pay for one weekend of food each month, and he began to take his five year old son at the time, Jett, to help the teenage boys feed the homeless. “The first trip, Jett was a little overwhelmed, and I was very emotional. What really touched me more than Jett's compassion was how appreciative and grateful most of the people were to see us each time,” proclaimed Marc Gottlieb. “Now that we have been donating and assisting for over a year, I also take my 3 year old son, Jax with us, he loves to feed the homeless dogs,” continues San Diego Chiropractor, Marc Gottlieb.
Hunger 2 Help originally started with two 12 year old boys wanting to make a difference. They gathered a few more friends to help make burritos from their home kitchen. They began making 100 burritos and now use the kitchen in a local pizza place to make the food that currently serves over 300 homeless in San Diego each Sunday morning. Once a year they go further by supplying shelter with rain tarps, hygiene kits and other comfort foods to help with the harsh weather that is ahead. They not only serve the homeless men and woman of San Diego but they serve the homeless animals as well with donations of dog food and treats. “Both my children have really embraced the idea of giving to others and helping the less fortunate,” says Gottlieb.
Dr.Marc Gottlieb joins the group on many weekends with his young boys to help in this endeavor. Chiropractic assistant, Taryn DAGostino is one of the event coordinators for this celebration and also joins in by making lunches once a month. ”At our San Diego Chiropractic Center, Life Within Chiropractic, we have started a food drive and a monetary donation area. The monetary donation will be spent 100% on tarps to protect the homeless during the rainy season and the food will be 100% for the food kitchen downtown,” explains Marc. “The celebration will have “Hunger 2 Help” kids in attendance with food, a jump house, prizes, music and much more,” adds Dr. Gottlieb.
“We are honored to be a part of our community and have the ability to serve others. The continued support from The Girls Scouts and local businesses is greatly appreciated. It is important we continue to support this to keep it going forward,” concludes Marc.
