Food bank seeks 500 volunteers for weekend distribution sites

In response to an urgent need for food brought on by crippling snow and ice storms, the San Antonio Food Bank is making plans to distribute food to thousands of people starting Friday.

More than 500 volunteers are needed to support seven mega-mobile distribution events throughout the city.

“Our community is hurting,” stated Eric Cooper, president and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank. “We have been meeting the emergency food needs all week for the homeless and those in shelters across our community. Now it’s time to reach those in homes through our distributions and home deliveries.”

At this weekend’s mega-mobile distribution events, the food bank will give out 100,000 tons of food and water.
