Food insecurity (the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food). is a severe problem in our society that many of us are not aware of. Many who are suffering from food insecurity are children. These children are not able to stand up for themselves and ask for help. And often times, their pain and suffering are invisible to the rest of the world. It is time that we become aware of this problem and lend a helping hand. 

Young children require a lot of healthy nutrition to support their growth. However, many children attending school in the Greater Coronado Neighborhood are suffering from food insecurity. Just getting enough to eat is a challenge for these children. Based on the number of children receiving free and reduced school meals, there are an estimated 800 elementary-aged children in this neighborhood’s schools who do not have the food they so desperately need

The Caring Coalition was started by a group of concerned neighbors over one year ago. It is a grassroots effort to provide access to good nutrition for families that are struggling to feed their children. 

Now, Caring Coalition, Yoga Phoenix, GIlbert Yoga, Sutra Midtown, Anahata and many other local yoga centers are working together on this important concert that is coming in May, to raise funds to provide food for these children. 

Please purchase your tickets to support the needs of our local children. Come to the concert and vibrate your love and kindness, help us to bring more help to these children. Please help them to grow up to be healthy, happy, functional and successful adults.
