One of our greatest passions at San Jose Chiropractic is giving back to the community. From October 11 to November 10, 2021, we asked patients to donate nonperishable food items to benefit the Mandarin Food Bank. Our theme was “Let’s Heal the Pantry Together!” Patients opened their hearts and pantries by donating over 50 pounds of food!
“We always want to be there for those in need. I want to thank our generous patients for providing food to help the hungry in the Mandarin neighborhood of Jacksonville,” said Dr. Owais. She added that this past year’s collection was the biggest our practice has witnessed.
The Mandarin Food Bank was established in 1991 and is a ministry of St. Joseph Catholic Church. The mission is to provide emergency food and clothing to people in need in the Mandarin community. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, the food bank provides a box of food for a complete holiday meal, serving approximately 400 families at each event.
We look forward to this year’s food drive and are committed to always being of service to those in need in Jacksonville.
