WE HAVE A TURKEY APRON WINNER!
You may or may not have seen our Turkey apron photo contest on Facebook this Thanksgiving. You can check out the pictures here.
Our winner of the 2015 photo contest is Judge Daphne Previti Austin. She is the judge for the 289th Juvenile District Court in Bexar County.
Along with the prestigious recognition of this highly sought after victory (ok ok, maybe that’s a stretch), we are also donating $500 to the San Antonio Food Bank in her name.
The San Antonio Food Bank- a Worthy Cause
The mission of the SAFB is to fight hunger in Southwest Texas through food distribution, programs, education, and advocacy. They are already accomplishing this in a big way, donating nearly 50 million pounds of food in FY2013 alone!
Here’s the breakdown of who benefits from their important work:
- 36% are children, under the age of 18 years old
- 46% of households include at least one employed adult
- 67% have incomes below the federal poverty level during the previous month
- 8% are homeless
And here’s a helpful infographic to explain the process:
Judge Daphne Previti Austin just became a part of this extensive network of helping and healing hands and we couldn’t be happier to have been a part of that, too.
If you are inspired to share your bounty this holiday season, here’s where you can get more information about donating your food, money, or time.
Have a wonderful holiday season,
