Step Up to the Challenge!

January 4, 2011

The San Antonio Food Bank, a member of the Feeding America network, is working harder every day to assist individuals and their families in Southwest Texas in these tough economic times. Fighting hunger is a daily challenge, and we are always looking for new ways to meet it head on.

That’s why today we’re so excited to announce our involvement in the Pound For Pound Challenge! Now in its third year, this proven fundraising program has partnered with NBC’s The Biggest Loser, General Mills, and Subway, to encourage Americans to “Lose Nationally, Feed Locally.” And we need your support to make our involvement a success!

Participating is easy and your impact can be huge. Simply sign up and pledge your weight loss goals at For every pound you pledge, the Pound for Pound Challenge will donate 11 cents to Feeding America – enough to secure one pound of groceries for the San Antonio Food Bank! If you are already at a healthy weight, you can pledge to maintain a healthy weight and five pounds of food will be donated.

The more sign ups and pledges a food bank has from its area, the more funds it receives. So please help us by signing up now and encouraging others to sign up and/or pledge!

It’s a great opportunity for our supporters to do something good for themselves, and do something good for our community. To learn more about the Pound For Pound Challenge, visit the website at
