Counselor Roxanne Maynard loads a San Antonio Food Bank bag into a car trunk during the Feb. 11 Food Bank pop-up market. Layered up to fight the colder temperatures, Maynard was one of 17 volunteers who helped distribute 14,788 pounds of food to 426 individuals. Another pop-up market will happen 3-5 p.m. Feb. 25 in parking Lot 8. Participants must register by calling 210-431-8326. Additionally, the Alamo Colleges implemented a winter weather impact fund to provide emergency aid to students affected by cold weather conditions. Applicants may be eligible for up to $1,000 based on need.
