March Out Hunger Food Drive
Today we met with the head people from the San Antonio Food Bank and Humana Sales Support Ali Bailey. We detailed the problems we encountered from last year and were assured that it will not happen again as we already have more information to move forward with helping Humana and SA Food Bank in this effort to March Out Hunger and support hold hardly these Food Drive.
Mr. Medina explained that the need for donated food to the Bank is immense. He explained that they help about 58,000 families a week and there are still another 200,000 that they cannot reach because of food shortages. Out of those, 1 of every 6 have a military connection. We as the VFW and District 20 need to support this effort to the maximum extent possible. Remember that hunger is hunger no matter who.
The Food Drive will start November 11, 2019 to December 7, 2019. Posts can participate monetarily ($1=10 lbs.) or by a Food Bank Barrel where Posts can collect food or both. We need to know which and how each Posts wants to participate (money or barrel or both), contact person information. Once we receive this information, I will forward it to Humana POC (Ali Bailey) and she will let you know the date the Food Bank will schedule a drop off barrels, for those that elected for barrels, as well as pick them up. Do not mail any checks to the Food Bank. They will come and collect them. Please expedite this information back to us as we have a short window to execute. Thanks.
