#SanAntonio Food Bank benefits from #Sikh philosophy of ‘selflessness’

As it became apparent six weeks ago that the coronavirus pandemic was going to test the San Antonio Food Bank like never before, the nonprofit’s leader welcomed calls from friends wanting to help.

Philanthropist G.P. Singh was one of the first to step forward.“At the start of the crisis, he reached out to say, ‘How can I help? Where do you need me? How can I be useful?’”

Food Bank CEO and president Eric Cooper said. “It wasn’t, I’m coming to you with the big idea. It was, ‘I’m not telling you how to run your business. I’m a servant.’”Singh’s humble approach came as no surprise to Cooper, who counts his “dear friend” and the other members of the city’s Sikh community as some of the Food Bank’s most devoted supporters.
