  • The San Antonio Food Bank will distribute food on the first Thursday of each month in an effort to serve the projected 250 households with much needed food. Food insecurity is still a reality and with the summer months approaching and kids out of school, the need for food increases. While Supplies Last, first come first serve.


    We ask for YOUR help. We need your plastic grocery bags (about 500 every month), volunteers to welcome and register our "neighbors", volunteers to bags groceries and help with getting these bags of food in cars as they drive through the food line. The food truck will arrive between 7:00 am-8:30 am and the food distribution will be from 9:00 -11:00 am. Please consider how you may help and see the ways the community comes together in times of need.

  • It is that of year when we begin collection nutritional snacks for those students in need at Windcrest Elementary. I have been asked why I chose this school rather than others in the area. I was contacted by the Family Specialist at this school, Yessica Carmona, asking for aid for many of the children that go home on Fridays with little or nothing to eat during the weekend. Since I began this ministry in January of 2021, our congregation has supplied enough snacks for a total of 940 bags! I try to put at least nine different snacks into each bag. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will start bagging the snacks in September to deliver to Windcrest Elementary every week.
