The Concho Valley Regional Food Bank began distributing food when the organization noticed the negative impact COVID-19 had on community households. The organization then initiated quarterly food distributions to help those in need.
“Everyone was affected by Covid, we would like to honor all those who lost family and loved ones with this Memorial Food and Fund Drive to benefit the Concho Valley Regional Food Bank,” Conexion Special Projects shared.
The Concho Valley Regional Food Bank is an affiliate of the San Antonio Food Bank. Both food banks are also members of Feeding Texas and Feeding America. The Concho Valley Regional Food Bank is a non-profit, community-based organization that has the resources of a national campaign.
