SAN ANTONIO – The Salvation Army will host a drive-thru public food distribution on Saturday morning in San Antonio, organizers announced on Friday.

The food distribution will take place from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. outside the Salvation Army’s Mission Corps facility located at 3802 SW Military Drive.

Grocery items are expected to include fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs, beef, chicken, non-perishable items and bottled water, according to the organization’s news release.
