An Outdoor Dining Experience Like No Other, Houston Street Food Benefits San Antonio Food Bank Kids Café
Diners are invited to gather for an urban outdoor picnic, Houston Street Food, and it is right around the corner! Houston Street Charities is selling gourmet baskets for a picnic down the middle of Houston Street from 11:30am to 2pm on Sunday, September 29. Some of Houston Street’s favorite chefs are providing food for the event to benefit the Kids Café program at the San Antonio Food Bank. Participants include: Bohanan’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, Dorrego’s at the Valencia, Bella on Houston and the Palm.
“The end of September is finally that time when San Antonio is ready to be outside again with friends. So we’re excited to plan another Houston Street Food event and welcome fall – right down the middle of the street,” said Cathy Siegel, Executive Director of Houston Street Charities. “And the best part is that the purchase of these gourmet baskets will help provide nutritious meals at after school activities for children who need food assistance.”

Eric Cooper, President/CEO of San Antonio Food Bank, explained the importance of this kind of program. “Rather than children getting crackers and powdered drink mix as a snack – or no snack at all – Kids Café meals and snacks are provided as alternatives,” said Cooper. “The Houston Street Food event provides critical funds to enable us to provide this healthy and filling meal component to existing after school activities and youth programs in our community. We are very humbled to be part of such a unique event.”
