SA FOOD BANK IS OUR 13TH UFH 2023 BENEFICIARY

With our upcoming 13th United for Hope tournament coming up on February 11th, we are extremely happy and proud to announce that the San Antonio Food Bank will be its beneficiary.
Registration for the Tournament is now open! If you would like to register for this fantastic event, please click the link here. If you would like to donate to this great charity, then please visit: www.safoodbank.org. We know that many families in and around the San Antonio area have been severely affected by inflation and ongoing price increases and many are turning to the food bank to feed their families.  Along with our donation, we would like to collect food items.  We will be collecting at our tournament on both Saturday and Sunday.

Exciting news! That's where you come in. The team that donates the highest number of individual items will have their team entry fees reimbursed, so start collecting! We appreciate all of your support and hope to see you there! The San Antonio Food Bank takes pride in fighting hunger, feeding hope in our 29 county service area. We believe that no child should go to bed hungry, adults should not have to choose between a hot meal and utilities, nor a senior sacrifice medical care for the sake of a meal.
Founded in 1980, The San Antonio Food Bank has quickly grown to serve 100,000 individuals a week in one of the largest service areas in Texas. Our focus is for clients to have food for today but to also have the resources to be self-sufficient in the future.
Fighting hunger is our number one priority but we also serve to educate and provide assistance in many other ways. We achieve this through our variety of programs and resources available to families, individuals, seniors, children, and military members in need. Again, if you would like to donate to this great charity, then please visit: www.safoodbank.org.
