San Antonios exciting cultures, music, cuisine, and social events make it an attractive place for many millennials, and the new year also brings opportunities for them to become more involved in the community through volunteering and other efforts at local organizations.
Here are 10 ways for young professionals to get involved in San Antonio in 2017:
Volunteer at a kitchen or homeless shelter There are many opportunities to volunteer to help provide food and shelter to people who are less fortunate. The San Antonio Food Bank seeks volunteers for warehouse sorting and packing, and Haven for Hope is looking for helpers to prepare and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals for its residents.

In addition to food distribution, the San Antonio Food Bank provides numerous programs that not only solve the immediate problems of hunger, but help individuals and families gain long-term food security.
The San Antonio Food Bank values the privacy of our donors and does not copy, reproduce, publish, post, distribute, share or sell, the name, personal contact information or description of donors to any outside individual or business.

Volunteer At The San Antonio Food Bank
Since its inception in 1980, the San Antonio Food Bank has been a major force in the fight against hunger in the San Antonio community. As a member of the Feeding America national coalition of food banks, the San Antonio Food Bank serves as a regional hub for food distribution to 200 partner food pantries scattered throughout Bexar and 15 surrounding counties in Southwest Texas. In 2020 alone, it collected and distributed 80 million pounds of food, providing meals to 120,000 individuals each week. To provide such a large degree of food assistance, the Food Bank requires the help of more than 100 volunteers each day to sort, package, and distribute the donated food items. Many of these volunteers participate as organized church groups who regularly assist the work of the Food Bank.
ACTS Core of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church is currently reviewing ways to better advance the Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service missions of the ACTS movement within the St. Francis community. As part of the Service mission, ACTS Core is organizing groups of St. Francis volunteers to assist in the vital work provided by the San Antonio Food Bank.
In 2021, St. Francis parishioners participated in a total of 36 San Antonio Food Bank volunteer sessions. Working with other volunteers present during those sessions, we created over 100,000 meals for the San Antonio community.
