The San Antonio Food Bank takes pride in fighting hunger, feeding hope in our 16 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 58,000 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.

Marathon Kids has been on mission to get kids moving for 23 years, more importantly to create a love of being physically active so that continues into their adult lives. We are an evidence-based running program that works for any kid, at any fitness level. Kids set goals and track their progress on an incremental journey to complete up to four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of a season. They run, or walk, at their own pace a lap at a time, a day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed. And for a little extra motivation, they earn fun Nike rewards at completion of each marathon.
You can find the Marathon Kids program in schools, after-school programs, and in homes across the nation. Marathon Kids is simple, fun, and effective!
