About Estero Bay Kindness Coalition:
Our primary mission is to partner with for-profits, nonprofits, churches, and schools to benefit the greater good and those living on the margins in the Estero Bay community.
In March 2018, he started Got Your Back, a program that helps feed kids over the weekend, providing 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, healthy snacks, fruit, milk, and juice to each kid enrolled. The kids in this program rely on “hot/reduced lunch” at school to eat during the week and would often go hungry on the weekends. By June 2018, Estero Bay Kindness Coalition was serving 48 students with Got Your Back. The following school year, it jumped to 8 schools and over 200 students in the SLO Unified School District. During this time, our organization became a nonprofit 501 C-3. By the 2019 school year, we were feeding over 200 children in 8 schools.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit and schools closed their doors in March 2020, Bobby met with local principals to get connected with some of the most vulnerable, food insecure families in the SLO Unified School District.
Estero Bay Kindness Coalition went from feeding school kids on the weekends to feeding whole families for the week, virtually overnight.
To meet the needs of the families referred to us by one of our 8 partnered schools, we created Bags of Love, a program that delivers 3 bags of groceries per week to over 130 families in the greater Estero Bay area. The bags of groceries consist of healthy, protein-rich breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, juice, milk, and fresh, local produce.
During this time, we also created Sunshine and Seed, a new and gently used kids clothing collective where kids can shop for free. When schools reopened in 2021, we reimplemented Got Your Back, sending kids home with healthy meals and snacks to eat over the weekends.
The Estero Bay Kindness Coalition has built a team of over 60+ volunteers, 2 team leaders, and 2 food pantries. They are currently partnered with 8 schools, 31 for-profits, 21 nonprofits, and 10 churches.
