East Lubbock orchard brings fruit to hungry residents

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Dozens of trees now line parts of East Lubbock's Industrial area. The trees were planted Saturday morning at 56th and Martin Luther King for the South Plains Food Bank.

The apples grown in the orchard will go to area programs aimed at feeding residents who otherwise wouldn't have access to fresh fruit.

The orchard is being planted through a grant from Dryer's Fruit Bars and the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.
