The secret sauce for the Valero Alamo Bowl’s success is how well San Antonio comes together as one team to provide such a special bowl experience.
Everyone attending the Valero Alamo Bowl becomes an ambassador for our event and city.
While we all want to get back to normal and host events like the Valero Alamo Bowl that mean so much to San Antonio, there are more important things than football right now.
That is why the Valero Alamo Bowl continues to do our part in helping those in need.
Earlier this off-season the Valero Alamo Bowl contributed $50,000 to the Food Bank’s COVID-19 relief efforts. This donation provided 500,000 pounds of groceries to those struggling with food insecurity during the crisis.
The dollars were able to provide 100% of the food distributed at the mega food distribution at the Alamodome on May 1, benefiting approximately 8,000 individuals (2,000 households with an average of 4 per household).
The Valero Alamo Bowl has also pledged support to three more charities: the Family Violence Prevention Services, the Culinaria Emergency Hospitality Fund and Haven for Hope.
“San Antonio is a very special city who comes together in times of need,” said Derrick Fox, President/CEO of the Valero Alamo Bowl. “We are very thankful for the opportunity to support deserving non-profit organizations during these times of unprecedented demand for their services.”
If you or someone you know needs emergency food assistance or help with applying for federal benefits, such as SNAP, please call the San Antonio Food Bank at: (210) 431-8326. You can register for an upcoming food distribution at: http://safoodbank.org/cvresponse
