U Can Share Food Drive a huge success

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD)– The 28th annual U Can Share Food Drive brought in tens of thousands of pounds of food for the South Plains Food Bank and nearly $140,000 in cash donations.

The drive fell short of the 500,000 pound goal, but David Weaver with the South Plains Food Bank says factoring in the money that was donated the drive raised enough resources for 1.2 million meals. More than 350,000 pounds of food was donated in one week. Each year, KCBD NewsChannel 11 partners with the South Plains Food Bank to fight hunger on the South Plains.@

While the drive is over, the need never stops. The food bank will continue to need help sorting all the donations received. @
