Families of SAISD will have the opportunity to receive food in time for the holidays at a mega food distribution event, the second one in recent days, in conjunction with the San Antonio Food Ban, RK Group, and SAISD.
This second food drive will offer families 20-pound turkeys, courtesy of the RK Group, as well as other holiday food items. Last week, more than 700 families had the chance to pick up turkey breasts, green beans, and canned goods, and the hope is to serve as many families or more this week.
“Partnering with SAISD and the San Antonio Food Bank to help feed our community this holiday season is a huge honor,” said The RK Group’s Vice President of Corporate Relations Jamie Kowalski. “For the past 75 years, it has been a long-standing goal of The RK Group to combat hunger and food insecurity. Through these partnerships, we will be able to support thousands of families in need.”
The San Antonio Food Bank President and CEO, Eric Cooper, echoed those sentiments.
“SAISD is such a great partner throughout the year, and we are proud to support their effort to reach families as the holiday break approaches. Together, we will turn hungry holidays into happy holidays,” Cooper said.
SAISD’s Family and Community Engagement (FACE) specialists are attuned to the needs of the families they serve. Families can pre-register for the event by visiting www.saisd.net/fooddistribution. Those unable to attend the mega food distribution may have food delivered to their home by their FACE specialist or social worker.
