United comes to the rescue to help South Plains Food Bank

By Katie Bauer  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - United Supermarkets presented a large donation to the South Plains Food Bank.  This comes after the food bank announced a food shortage crisis on Tuesday.

The South Plains Food Bank couldn't be more grateful for this donation. United Supermarkets unloaded 51,000 pounds of food on Wednesday.

This comes after the food bank was down to just a two week supply of dry food. Now their inventory is nearly doubled because of the donation. "We have been tremendously blessed by the community's that we server and we owe it to those community's to do whatever we can to support the others around us," said Eddie Owens with United Supermarkets.

"I am so grateful for them taking the lead and calling us up and saying we want to help and I'm just blown away by their generosity," said David Weaver with the South Plains Food Bank.

If you want to join in and help this cause, at all Lubbock County United Supermarkets, shoppers will have the opportunity to make a cash donation at the time of check out. United adds they will match the first $10,000 received from guests.
