Fighting Hunger in San Antonio (January 2020)
Our San Antonio office volunteered at a local food bank and jointly prepared 921 boxes (27,630 pounds) of food alongside 75 other volunteers. Way to go, team! The San Antonio Food Bank serves 16 counties in southwest Texas by providing food for those in need, as well as hosting assistance and education programs to support self-sufficiency in the future. Over 58,000 individuals are served each week, including children, seniors, the working poor, single parents, veterans, and the homeless.
Everyone enjoyed this humbling and rewarding event and plans are underway to return on a quarterly basis.
