Chloe Williams

Not subscribed to local news but still want to stay up-to-date on the happenings around town? Look no further. Highlighting notable stories from external San Antonio news sources, State of the City summarizes the most captivating news headlines of the week. This week’s topics range from cooler temperatures in San Antonio to a new hunger campaign being launched by the San Antonio Food Bank. 

New COVID-19 shot brought to Texas 

The updated COVID-19 shot is becoming increasingly available in Texas after weeks of distribution problems. Although the shots are now approved for people six months and older, hospitals, pediatricians and pharmacies are still experiencing limited availability due to working directly with drugmakers rather than the state and federal government. As a result, the doses are not being distributed to providers’ offices throughout the state. This form of protocol is a regular system for annual vaccines but is new for the COVID-19 vaccine. 

San Antonio Food Bank launches new campaign

A new campaign called Hunger-Free November is being launched by the San Antonio Food Bank. The effort will provide meals for around 50,000 seniors experiencing food insecurity in Bexar County. The fundraising campaign will start throughout October and extend through mid-November if needed.

Weekend weather in San Antonio chills out 

San Antonio woke up Saturday morning to temperatures in the low 60s after months of drought and high temperatures after a cold front brought nearly two inches of rainfall to the county on Thursday. The cooler temperatures are not here to stay, as Monday’s forecast brings San Antonio back into the upper 80s. 

Wounded Warrior Project hosts 5K

The Wounded Warrior Project held its Carry Forward 5K at Mission County Park on Saturday. Proceeds from the event will be used to ensure veterans and their families continue to receive help if it is needed. Participants in the race were asked to carry a flag, weight or another person, symbolizing the responsibility veterans have carried on their shoulders to protect the country.
