SOUTH PLAINS FOOD BANK
The South Plains Food Bank, Inc. is a humanitarian resource responsible for securing, growing, processing, and distributing food to charitable organizations and persons in need. South Plains Food Bank, Inc. also strives to provide opportunities for persons to break out of the poverty cycle.
The South Plains Food Bank is committed to alleviating hunger and giving hope to the hungry.
Food banking solves two problems … hunger and waste.
Food banks collect food donated by individuals through food drives; unsaleable food from manufacturers, wholesalers, grocery stores; unmarketable or surplus produce from farmers; and prepared, but unserved, food from restaurants. At the warehouse, the food is cleaned, sorted, packaged, and distributed to individuals and families in need through partnership with local non-profit social service agencies and churches.
South Plains Food Bank, Inc. was founded in 1983 to provide food and hope for families in need in a 25-county area of West Texas. Through a network of 250 non-profit agencies and churches, food is available in the following South Plains counties: Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Dawson, Dickens, Fisher, Floyd, Gaines, Garza, Hale, Hockley, Kent, King, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Motley, Scurry, Stonewall, Terry, Yoakum.
