This press release came from the Spurs Organization:
As the need for food assistance continues to grow amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Spurs Give and the Tim Duncan Foundation announced today that they have each donated $100,000 to the San Antonio Food Bank as part of the new Spurs Café initiative. With this $200,000 donation, the Food Bank will deliver 25,000 meals to families living in low-income apartment complexes across San Antonio.
Hundreds of families will be served through six local restaurants over the next five weeks. Those restaurants are Bistr09, Botika, Cherrity Bar, Guerilla Gourmet, Pharm Table, and Nonna Osteria.
“As the need for food assistance in our community continues to grow, we cannot afford to be bystanders,” said Jennifer Regnier, Executive Director at Spurs Give. “Thousands of San Antonians do not know where their next meal is coming from, and need us now more than ever. We hope this inspires you to donate to the Spurs Give Together Fund today.”
Through the formation of the Spurs Give Together Fund, a response to the current worldwide pandemic, first responders and their families receive support through local businesses. The non-profit is committed to raise more than $1 million.
“Significant donations from Spurs Give and the Tim Duncan Foundation will keep paychecks flowing for restaurant staff as they make meals for kids and seniors in need, “ said Eric S. Cooper, President & CEO at the San Antonio Food Bank. “Many of these restaurant staff members might find themselves in a Food Bank food line if not for gifts of support like these two. The donations also have the added benefit of sending scratch meals from some of San Antonio’s best chefs to hundreds of households facing hunger for the first time. This is innovation at its best.”
