In 1988, the dedicated Mission Road Staff started grilling delicious chicken and creating homemade beans, salad, bread and dessert and then delivering these yummy plates personally to thousands of offices and homes across San Antonio & South Texas.  Our team put in weeks of planning, mixing, baking and, of course, grilling to raise money to buy Christmas gifts for the vulnernable children and fragile adults in our care.
