Food Insecurity

“‘Food insecurity’ means that at some point in a year, someone in a household went hungry because the household couldn’t afford food.” [tpr.org]

“Texas is ranked 2nd in the nation for food insecurity with 1 in 6 living in food insecure homes.” [safoodbank.org]

Baptist Temple

We are donating the food we collect to Baptist Temple again this year. Baptist Temple is one of more than 500 San Antonio Food Bank partner non-profit organizations.

In 2017, over 3500 people visited the Baptist Temple thrift store, food pantry, and community garden. They distributed 85,912 lbs. of food in 2017.

We partner with Baptist Temple to help them provide for their neighborhood on the south side of San Antonio. They have many fantastic programs to meet their neighbors’ needs.

Help us fill their food pantry with the requested most wanted foods. We are collecting food on Sunday, February 3.
