Service tasks may include sorting donations, basic renovation and facilities maintenance, serving meals, gardening and other outreach projects.

2017 Reflection

The boxes we made were described as opportunities, instead of being called meals for the elderly. The San Antonio Food Bank provides opportunities to their community by giving meals, so the people who receive them have opportunities to pursue other activities without worrying about when and what they will eat next.
