OUR ROLE IN FIGHTING HUNGER
The San Antonio Food Bank strives to maintain the highest standard of efficiency while providing food to those in need. With only a 2% overhead, 98% of donated resources go to help set the table for 58,000 individuals a week.
We rely on the generosity and support of local businesses, churches, foundations, corporations, government, civic groups and individuals in order to successfully continue serving Southwest Texans who are at risk for going hungry.
NARROWING THE FOOD GAP
OUR IMPACT BY THE NUMBERS
Rescued 63 million pounds of food in FY16, receiving the equivalent of a semi-trailer full of food every hour.
We currently serve 58,000 individuals each week through our networks of agencies and unique programs we offer.
With your support, we will be able to nourish those in need by distributing 77 million meals in FY 17.
On a peak Summer day our kitchen will prepare 10,000 meals for children who lose their access to daily school meals.
We partner with more than 500 non-profit agencies throughout 16 counties in Southwest Texas.
Only a 2% overhead means that 98% of our resources go back into fighting hunger in our community.
