Around Town: Critic's Pick

Best Nonprofit Mission

San Antonio Food Bank
5200 W Old US Hwy 90, (210) 337-3663, safoodbank.org

Hungry families have been additionally strained by recent cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, and the nonprofit SA Food Bank is feeling the hit as they try to feed the 58,000 residents a week that visit them for services. While the cafeteria hall is utilized as an emergency resource, after the cuts took place, the hall now sees regular use. As President Eric Cooper told the Current earlier this year, the SAFB is under unprecedented demand on their already limited supply. Hats off to our local food bank, working overtime to make up for the loss in food assistance.

RUNNER-UP: Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, 922 San Pedro,
