SAN ANTONIO -

The food bank hosted over 100 people looking to help those in need and find love at the same time.

"I think now it's a time were the singles community can serve the community," said volunteer Chris Feliciano.

Singles from all over the city showed up in full force to help sort thousands of pounds of food donations. Those that aren’t single also showed up. The food bank never turns away a volunteer.

"We had an overwhelming response from the community for November and December and so we have hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to process. We can’t do without volunteers," said Dawn Thurmond, the food bank's communication manager.

The food bank provides emergency food assistance to 58,000 people each week. Officials estimate a total of 120 people showed up to volunteer processing more than 15,000 pounds of food, providing more then 11,000 meals.

"It sounded like something fun. Meet people and also give back to the community at the same time," said volunteer Sara Gonzales.

The food bank will host a friend and family night from 6-9 p.m. Saturday.
