San Antonio Food Bank

Just about everyone in San Antonio has heard about the BOOK of FREE. Value conscious shoppers love our products for FREE offers and significant savings on dining, entertainment, golf, services and more. Merchants love our products for the incredible marketing opportunities.
We take pride in the fact that we are a local company with deep roots in the community and a vested interest in developing strong partnerships to help our economy grow and prosper while providing much needed funding for charities and schools.
Our latest edition, 2013 San Antonio’s Best Restaurants BOOK of FREE, is now on-sale at The book has 40 certificates worth $1,400 in savings with 15 NEW restaurants participating! These restaurants represent some of the best in casual upscale dining. Don’t miss the Special Offers section with some incredible high-value dining, entertainment and automotive offers.
BOOK of FREE is committed to helping our communities by donating a portion of the proceeds from each BOOK of FREE edition to local charities. We are proud to have raised over $225,000 for dozens of San Antonio charities and non-profit groups in just two years! Proceeds from the San Antonio’s Best Restaurants Edition will benefit the San Antonio Food Bank.
Over the last two years, San Antonians have warmly welcomed Costa Pactifica as the “shortcut to the Mexican Pacific” and our business is doing extremely well. We decided to participate in The BOOK of FREE for two reasons. It provides a good marketing opportunity to reach a new audience, inviting new diners to come try our seafood platters and happy hour specials. We also decided to participate because we want to give back and support the community. The BOOK of FREE accomplishes both goals. Our certificates in the 2013 San Antonio’s BEST Restaurants BOOK of FREE are for a FREE appetizer which is a $10 value; we also included a $10 certificate towards the purchase of a delicious specialty plate. As bonus offer, we included a certificate that has a $70 value for a party of four. Buy a BOOK of FREE and come check us out - we are located on 1604 in the Stone Oak area. – Clay Wheeler, General Manager, Costa Pacifica.
I think of The BOOK of FREE as “eating for a cause” because contributions from The BOOK of FREE help us to fight hunger in San Antonio and Southwest Texas. The San Antonio Food Bank can turn every $1 donated into 7 meals, making your purchase of the 2013 Best Restaurants Book of Free a critical part of our efforts to fight hunger and feed hope in our community. Our needs increase dramatically during the summer months since disadvantaged children are not receiving a 3rd warm meal each day in school. The San Antonio Food Bank distributes food through a network of 530 nonprofit agencies feeding over 58,000 individuals each week. Your purchase of The BOOK of FREE will not only provide great savings for your family to dine out at San Antonio’s best restaurants, but will also add needed funding to help feed our community. We appreciate the awesome folks that coordinate Book of Free and the local merchants that participate to make this a solid program! - Michael G. Guerra Chief Development Officer, San Antonio Food Bank.
