SPFB kicks-off Summer of Sharing

The South Plains Food Bank kicked-off the "Summer of Sharing" food drive Thursday.  They hope to avoid an emergency situation this summer.

CEO David Weaver said they fell short of their goal last year and that food is already gone. They hope this program will be more successful.

"The whole idea of the summer of sharing is just to be proactive and to remind people that hunger really does not take a vacation.  There are children, there are families, there are workers that need to be fed, and this is a way people can contribute a little food out of their pantries and make a tremendous difference for those one in six in Lubbock that we serve," Weaver said.

If you would like to help out you can go to any one of the 13 Plains Capitol Bank locations and drop off food or make a direct donation.
