Through a generous award from Hunger Is, a joint charitable program of The Safeway Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), the San Antonio Food Bank received an investment for the The Kitchen Table program. The award was especially unique for the area in that Safeway no longer maintained an active grocery presence in the region, but still found it important to fund such work. The Kitchen Table used the funds to launch its programming throughout Comal County with a focus on bringing nutritious meals to children who struggle with hunger while they are out of school, including: dinner time, over the weekends, during holidays and over the course of summer break.
Currently, the effort is funded through a grant by the McKenna Foundation and through the San Antonio Food Bank. Ongoing funding allows The Kitchen Table staff to establish and coordinate meals sites, manage nutritious menu planning, as well as hire a qualified chef.
