With the support of Valero, the “Fill the Bowl” event is held every year. This season the Bowl is trying to break the record number of donations that was set in 2012 when 187,428 pounds of food were collected for the San Antonio Food Bank. That total was enough to provide 146,428 meals for South Texas families.
