In March of 2007, two service-minded friends saw an opportunity to make a difference to those in need in San Antonio. After volunteering for years at the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Room, we realized that the Dining Room needed a reliable source for high quality protein (frozen meats) to build the meals around. We created a 501(c)3 non-profit charity to purchase the meats and other staple items for the Dining Room through our partnership with Sysco Foods. The Dining Room moved to the Prospects Courtyard at Haven for Hope in June 2010. It feeds breakfast, lunch and dinner and totals about 1,200 meals a day.
With support of our churches, friends, business associates, and our friends at Sysco Foods, we have now been making food deliveries every other Tuesday for nine and a half years.
