SHORTENING THE LINE: A Conversation-Effective Efficiency and Collaboration

May 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 pm



It is projected that in 10 years San Antonio will be twice the population size it is today.

Across the geography of San Antonio countless congregations and organizations, like yours, are working daily in countless ways at “feeding the line” of the most vulnerable in Our City. How we learn to better collaborate today will directly impact how we better co-live tomorrow and into the future!

This future-critical conversation on May 21st will open up where we are today and how we might innovatively and comprehensively, efficiently and effectively, strategically and collaboratively provide a solid foundation and future to “shortening the line” of those who struggle to put food on the table.

“Shortening the Line” will intentionally bring together leadership and community from across governmental, nonprofit and faith-based entities in the on-going process of partnering, networking and discovery necessary to vibrant collaboration. COSA’s Department of Human Services’ Faith-Based Initiative and the San Antonio Food Bank are the collaborative hosts for this community conversation.

All are welcome!

Conversation Starters:
Eric Cooper, SAFB (direct services and programs)
Mike Flores, Alamo Colleges (education and skills)
George Hempe, Workforce (job opportunities and success)
Mel Woosley, City of SA (human services and government)
