SAN ANTONIO -

A young entrepreneur is taking a different approach to helping feed families around San Antonio and South Texas.

Cindy Sebek started a wine company called the Gracious Gift.

For every bottle sold, seven meals will be provided to the San Antonio Food Bank.

"This opportunity to partner with the Greatest Gift in this magical season is pretty incredible," said Eric Cooper, president and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank

Sebek was a part of two life-altering events, she said.

While she was getting her masters at Texas Tech University, she attended a class about social change.

That class got her thinking, she said.

"How could I be involved with a company that truly makes a direct impact pretty quickly?" she asked herself.

It didn't take long for her to get her answer.

Then, during a church service, she saw a video about problems in San Antonio. One of them concerned hunger.

Then the statistics were flashed on the screen, she said.

"I honestly thought it was a third-world country. I was shocked to find out it was here in San Antonio. It's truly my neighbors that were hungry. I thought this was completely unacceptable," Sebek said.

"I think we often hear those statistics and oftentimes don't act," Cooper said.

Sebek was one who acted.

After a lot of research, she found a winery in Lodi, Calif., to supply the wine and then she convinced HEB to sell the wine.

They offer a Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and an Old Vine Red.

"I can tell you it is absolutely delicious. I have had multiple friends (who have) taste-tested and I have always gotten a thumbs up," said Sebek.

Not only is it delicious, but every bottle has a message.

The label says, "This bottle will feed a neighbor in need."
