SVDP Honey Creek is a client partner with the San Antonio Food Bank, from which they purchase about 85% of the food they distribute to "those they serve." From the over 530 food pantries like ours that SAFB serves throughout lower central and south Texas, a few are recognized each year with the annual "Golden Apple Awards," which highlight numerous categories in all areas of operations in the mission of charity of their food pantry partners. This year the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at St Joseph - Honey Creek was honored to be selected the "Pantry of the Year." This award recognizes the dedication of our many volunteers who work very hard to make life better for our brothers and sisters whom we serve. It also recognizes and validates the trust our many benefactors at St Joseph have placed in SVDP to use their generous contributions to make a difference in the lives of those in need in our area. Congratulations to our deserving volunteers, and thank you to all who have generously given to help the less fortunate in our parish, helping our SVDP to become a great success.
