Five nonprofits in San Antonio and Bexar County will be receiving much needed support from Bank of America to help combat food insecurity in the region, WOAI reports.

San Antonio Food Bank is set to receive $200,000 for its programming which serves the needs of approximately 60,000 families per week. WOAI reports the organization’s demand has recently doubled during the pandemic. Other nonprofits to benefit from the funds include Soldier’s Angels, which provides aid to service members and military families in the region.

“Many of our local residents and businesses, like others around the world, are hurting during the coronavirus crisis, and by working with leading local nonprofits, we are able to deploy critical resources to immediately address some of their most pressing, basic needs,” said Jessica Miller, Bank of America San Antonio Market President.
