SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Food Bank hosted 400 fashionistas and philanthropists for its 6th Annual Runway Fashion Show, on Thursday, evening March 1.  This year’s theme was “Where Fashion Meets Compassion.”  

In the 24 hours before the show, the Food Bank’s warehouse, located at 5200 Enrique M. Barrera Pkwy, underwent an amazing transformation to full-fledged fashion runway. This year’s event theme was a Japanese Street Fair and showcased the work of internationally acclaimed Japanese designer, Yumi Katsura, hors d’oeuvres inspired by Japanese cuisine and prepared by the Food Bank’s culinary arts team and students, Sake, a signature cocktail and a street market with pop-up boutiques from local vendors who donated a portion of their evening sales.

The proceeds from Runway support the San Antonio Food Bank, where every dollar generated will provide 7 meals. Funds from Runway will go directly to services to help nourish children this summer. Nearly 200,000 students in our area are at risk for hunger during the 10 weeks of summer when they no longer have access to the free/reduced breakfast and lunch they receive at school during the school year.
