Help Us Collect 1 Million Pounds of Food

November 7, 2011

Food 4 SAThe San Antonio Food Bank has joined forces with Security Service Federal Credit Union (FCU), Tesoro, H-E-B, the San Antonio Express-News, News 4 WOAI and Magic 105.3 for its annual November food drive – the largest in the city. The goal: put a million pounds of food on the table for Southwest Texas’ most needy. The current economic environment makes this year’s drive even more critical.

“Nearly one out of every three children in Bexar County struggles with hunger and food insecurity,” says Eric Cooper, president and chief executive officer for the San Antonio Food Bank.

“San Antonio is an incredibly giving city, and we’re looking to exceed a million pounds of food this year,” says David Reynolds, president and chief executive officer for Security Service FCU, which has sponsored the food drive since its beginning. “Please donate food and money. With just a $10 donation, the Food Bank can buy 100 pounds of groceries. No one should go hungry in Texas…and you can help.”

Donations can be made online at www.safoodbank.org. Progress can be tracked by following the food drive on Twitter at www.twitter.com/food4sa and www.facebook.com/food4sa.

Nonperishable food donations can be dropped off at any one of the 24 Security Service FCU service centers in San Antonio, Boerne, Pleasanton, Castroville and Schertz and at select H-E-B San Antonio stores during November.  The most needed items are peanut butter, cereal, tuna, beans, rice, mac and cheese, chili, canned soup and lunch meat, pop top foods, full meals in a box or can.

We have several events in conjunction with Food 4 SA. Please visit our website to get all the details.
