Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $2,500 to San Antonio Food Bank’s community kitchen at Haven for Hope

Funds will go towards purchasing new kitchen equipment

SAN ANTONIO, TX (February 12, 2019) — The Security Service Charitable Foundation has presented $2,500 to the San Antonio Food Bank who has been fighting hunger in Southwest Texas through food distribution programs, education, and advocacy since 1980.

Funds will be used to purchase kitchen equipment for the food bank’s community kitchen at Haven for Hope. This kitchen serves 55,000 meals monthly and is open 365 days a year for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

“We believe no one should go to bed hungry,” said Eric Cooper, president and CEO for the San Antonio Food Bank. “As we work to serve some 58,000 individuals a week across 16 counties, we know this can only be possible through donations such as this one from Security Service.”

The credit union has been actively involved with the food bank for many years through food campaigns and the Volunteer Corps which serves meals at the Haven for Hope kitchen several times a year.

“Our volunteers have utilized most of the equipment in the kitchen when prepping meals for individuals and families staying at Haven for Hope,” said Greg Reed, senior vice president of member service for Security Service and SA Food Bank board member.  “Our volunteers recognize the importance and necessity of the kitchen equipment to the daily operations and this donation will allow them to continue to care for those in our community who depend on the shelter.”

The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas.
