Why Wheat?

The wheat logo for CAM references our commitment to sharing and caring for all of those in need by feeding them, clothing them, by providing financial assistance and by feeding their soul through grace and love. Wheat is often a symbol of life, sustainability, charity and love. Wheat is a global sustainer of life being utilized to create various forms of bread in different cultures. Historically people planted, harvested and broke bread together for the betterment of their community. Celebrating this incredible bounty by giving back was and is an important part of all cultures. Today many of us harvest in different ways and sharing our bounty with others is still incredibly important.: "When you harvest the crops on your land, do not cut all the way to the corners of your field. Don’t pick up the grain that falls on the ground. Leave it for the poor…"

Leviticus 23:22,


Just like a triage or emergency room, people come to CAM in all sort of crisis. No appointment is necessary and all are welcome.

What We Do

Our mission is to share the love of Christ by providing immediate assistance and encouragement to people in crisis. We do this in the following ways:
We've assisted 20,000 families and individuals with groceries, and 20,000 families and individuals with clothing.
We work with over 200 volunteers in San Antonio, Texas. Want to join our community?
Every person who comes to CAM, regardless of beliefs, is considered a child of God. Help is extended to all clients through the distribution of food, clothing, financial assistance, or by referrals to other agencies, prayer and a listening ear.

Celebrate CAM's 40th Anniversary

CAM is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year.  With that in mind, we are celebrating this milestone at our annual dinner gala “Feast to Feed”.  Not only will this event earn important dollars to support our ministry; we hope it will give us an opportunity to look back at 40 years of accomplishments, as well as unveil our vision of things to come.  This event is often an important friendraiser as much as a fundraiser and it gives us an opportunity to be a voice for those in need.  Not only a voice but also a solution!  It is also an incredible opportunity to share the power of the Body of Christ working together to make a difference in our community.

Feast to Feed
October 25, 2017
The Witte Museum, Mays Family Center
Social Hour & Silent Auction:  6 p.m.
Dinner: 7 p.m.

Summer Internship Opportunities

CAM offers student summer internships in order to introduce young people to the world of ministry and service, and to build interest in CAM among young people- especially young people who attend our member churches.

Our internships are appropriate for students ages 15 and up.  While most of our former interns have been high school students, college students also benefit from the experience and offer CAM an excellent level of service.

Interns are asked to serve at least 10 shifts (half day each) and work in all the areas of our operation.   The ten shifts may be scheduled (this is not a drop in thing) anytime over the course of the summer as long as the intern is dependable.   Some interns use their talents and influence to do special projects for CAM.    In addition to serving clients, we ask interns to be reliable and polite, check in weekly, give a tour, invite a group, and tell their church about CAM and the internship experience.

Please contact Mary Henderson for more information at 210-223-4099.
