Spurs Give and the Tim Duncan Foundation donate $200,000 to San Antonio Food Bank

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and so many losing their jobs, food assistance is in dyer need. Coming together for the community the Spurs Give and Tim Duncan Foundation teamed up that they have each donated $100,000 each to the San Antonio Food Bank part of the Spurs Café initiative.

Bistr09, Botika, Cherrity Bar, Guerilla Gourmet, Pharm Table, and Nonna Osteria make up the six local restaurants will deliver a total of 25,000 meals to families living in low-income apartment complexes around San Antonio over the course of five weeks.

The new initiative is going to serve the community to those who don’t have transportation to get to the food bank to pick up orders themselves.

“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.”

Early May, the Spurs Give announced the formation of the Spurs Give Together Fund which is intended to support first responders, inspire local commerce and provide to families directly impacted by the pandemic through local non-profits with over $1 million raised together.

“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.”
