In my last episode, I visited 4 places that help people live well. There was more to tell. In this episode, I learned about even more places that help people to live well. Two places are helping people eat well, and I met a choir that helps people who have been without their own homes through music and caring. I also learned that everyday people like you and me can help others to live well.
Live Well Tip #75: SUPPORT HUNGER-RELIEF ORGANIZATIONS:
Feeding San Diego
Mr. Vince and I talked for awhile about what it means to be hungry and what a volunteer. It’s hard to believe that some kids like me, and some families don’t have enough to eat. But places like Feeding San Diego collect food and prepare it and put it in packages so that other places throughout the county can give it to the people who need it most. And Mr. Vince gets help from 16,000 volunteers to help 485,000 children, families and seniors! Amazing! Kids like me can help too. And whole families.

Live Well Tip #71: VOLUNTEER AT A FOOD PANTRY:
Meals on Wheels San Diego County
Ms. Debbie showed me around her building, where they are growing fruits and different plants that they cook with. Then she let me deliver a meal to someone with her and Mr. Willy. It was awesome!

“Serving and Advocating for the Homeless Community Through Music, Poetry, and Art”:
Voices of Our City Choir

Look for a film about Voices of Our City Choir on PBS in 2018, called “The Homeless Chorus Speaks”.
I am amazed by the great things happening in San Diego, California, my hometown. And the awesome people who are making great things happen. I loved making this show about how we can all help each other to live well and then end up helping ourselves live well too! See you next time.
