Thousands of Lubbock area residents will not go hungry this Christmas holiday, thanks to the South Plains Food Bank. The food bank began handing out Christmas boxes Saturday morning, with help from volunteers from First United Methodist Church. The food boxes include frozen foods, canned goods, and fruits and veggies. Volunteers with the church along with South Plains Food Bank employees say this is a great way to help those less fortunate in our community.
Oscar Solis, South Plains Food Bank employee, "I think it's a great event, especially during Christmas time. It's all about giving. There's a lot of hungry people out there. This is a great way to serve the community. Give back to the community and help others."
More 3,000 Christmas boxes will be distributed throughout the next few days
