Woodforest Charitable Foundation donates $10,000 to San Antonio Food Bank

San Antonio Food Bank Receives $10,000 Donation

SAN ANTONIO, TX – Each year in the United States over 25 million people visit a food bank because of food insecurity.  In San Antonio, one in four children experience hunger.  Woodforest Charitable Foundation recently donated $10,000 in support of San Antonio Food Bank’s privately funded feeding programs for children.

The San Antonio Food Bank confronts childhood hunger through its Kids Café and BackPack Programs.  Kids Cafés are safe, nurturing places where children can go after school to receive a hot supper as well as help with homework from volunteers or staff members.  In addition to Kids Cafés, the Food Bank also partners with dozens of schools to provide food for children at-risk of going hungry over a weekend or holiday.  Backpacks are stocked with nutritious, easy-to-prepare items and are distributed discreetly to children on Fridays or the last day before a school break.

“Woodforest Charitable Foundation’s donation will be utilized to help feed thousands of poor, needy and hungry children participating in the Food Bank’s Kids Café and BackPack Programs,” stated Eric Cooper, Executive Director of San Antonio Food Bank.  “Without Woodforest’s kindhearted support and generosity many children would simply go hungry.  Thank you for joining us in the fight against childhood hunger.”
