HABC partners with San Antonio Food Bank for monthly mini pop-up food distributions

San Antonio, TX –  The Housing Authority of Bexar County has partnered with the San Antonio Food Bank to hold monthly mini pop-up food distributions at all three of the agency’s Bexar Management Development Corporation (BMDC) properties. These distributions aim to serve BMDC residents, HABC’s Section 8 clients, and the surrounding communities.

On February 21, 22 and 23, HABC held its first pop-up distribution at each property, and was proudly able to serve 902 individuals. The agency hopes to grow this number in the coming months, reaching the agency’s most vulnerable populations, which include the elderly, disabled, and low-income families.

“We are excited to work with Kelly Figueroa with the San Antonio Food Bank, who has helped the Housing Authority of Bexar County bring relief to our beloved residents and community. Especially right now, with the inflation of food prices and the SNAP program’s monthly food benefits dropping for many families, I am happy that we can help our residents and community struggling with food insecurity, or at least we can ease it a little bit with a smile,”said Tammy Rodriguez, HABC’s Resident Services Coordinator.

HABC strives to provide affordable housing and easily accessible resources to all Bexar County residents. These food distributions will help provide meals to hundreds of eligible families that HABC serves.

The agency’s next scheduled food distributions will be at the following times and locations:

March 21– 1:30 p.m at Miller’s Pond Apartments(6200 Old Pearsall Rd.)

March 22– 1:30 p.m at Bear Springs Apartments (11803 Marbach Rd.)

March 23– 1:30 p.m at Remigio Apartments (3760 Remigio St.)
