SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Armed Services YMCA hosted neighborhood food exchange event Thursday to combat hunger among local military members and their families.

The event was open to active duty military members and their families who meet federal income requirements for emergency food assistance. The ASYMCA holds food exchange events on the fourth Thursday of each month from January to October and the third Thursday in November and December.

``There is never enough that we can do for our military families and this is just one simple way to thank them for their service,'' said ASYMCA Executive Director Tim Ney.
