2017 GOLDEN APPLES AWARDS RECAP

Each year we take one evening to celebrate all your work and let you know the San Antonio Food Bank appreciates your partnership. On April 5, 2017, the San Antonio Food Bank welcomed over 300 guests for the 2017 Golden Apple Awards. There was delicious food, a guitarist from Don’t Forget the Music, memorials to those that left the hunger fighting ranks, and of course the awards!
Congrats to all awardees, and to our entire network of over 500 partner agencies that distribute food across 16 counties. We look forward to what the rest of 2017 will bring!
