Serve the homeless, at-risk youth, immigrants and those affected by poverty in the San Antonio area. Participants will join forces with the San Antonio Food Bank to learn and serve through their urban garden, Kids Café, Haven for Hope and food warehouse programs. Hands-on service and educational sessions will provide participants with insight to the social issues impacting San Antonio.
Service tasks may include sorting donations, basic renovation and facilities maintenance, serving meals, gardening and other outreach projects.
The boxes we made were described as “opportunities”, instead of just being called meals for the elderly; the San Antonio Food Bank, whose mission is Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope, provides opportunities to their community by providing those meals so that the people who receive them have opportunities to pursue other activities without worrying about when and what they will eat next.
