South Plains Food Bank is Asking For Your Help

The pantry is starting to run low at the South Plains Food Bank.

"Usually, we don't see the floor. We are being more dependent on our local donors due to most of national donations going to hurricane relief," says David Weaver, Executive Director of the South Plains Food Bank.

The South Plains Food Bank is a staging area for hurricane relief on the Gulf coast. It will ship food to Hurricane Rita victims when and if the storm hits.  Meanwhile, it's helping provide food to Lubbock evacuation shelters and Lubbock families who are housing additional family and friends due to the hurricane.

This weekend, two fundraisers will help fill that pantry. Four Texas Tech students are sponsoring Operation Collaboration. The food drive is from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday. You can drop donations off at the Albertson's on 50th and Indiana.

Food and monetary donations will also be accepted by the Wings Miniature Aircraft Society while they fly their model planes at Reese Saturday. That event takes place from 9 p.m. to sundown.

If you would like to give donations to the food bank, hours are 9-5 p.m. The South Plains Food Bank is located at 4612 Locust Avenue. You can also mail monetary donations to that address. The zip code is 79414. Or donate online by ( clicking here).
