Volunteers for Project Hope distribute food at Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit


SAN ANTONIO – With so many households in and round San Antonio coping with troublesome conditions it’s inspiring to see organizations step up and assist out.

Volunteers for Project Hope have been up early Monday morning distributing kilos and kilos of food at Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit.

Vicki Nelson went from volunteer to recipient of Project Hope, a program of the San Antonio Food Bank.

“People lost everything. They’ve gone without electricity or water, so to just have some water, food dropped off to them it means the world,” Nelson stated.

Cars lined up with households in want of the food.

“It just really gives me a warm feeling in my heart when I see all of the recipients drive up and they receive their food, and the smiles on their faces,” volunteer John Thompson stated.

Each one of the bins is crammed with roughly 60 kilos of food.

On prime of the pandemic, final week’s winter climate didn’t make conditions simpler and figuring out that fueled some of the volunteers.


“It’s a lot more motivation for us, basically you can see there’s more volunteers here today. I think last week really brought out that need and that knowing of that need to be here to serve,” Scott Bellair, Project Hope assistant facilitator stated.

As for recipients like Vicki, the food isn’t simply for her. When she receives it she says she really goes and helps out others.

“It’s for those who don’t know about the program even, and some are kind of intimidated, embarrassed to admit that you know— that’s what we’re here for,” Nelson stated.
