San Antonio’s largest food drive aims to collect a million pounds of food in one month

The 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 and Magic 105.3 for its annual Food 4 SA Campaign – the largest food drive in the city.  The goal: put one 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.”
