NewsChannel 11 has learned that demand on the South Plains Food Bank has increased 20 percent or more. High gas prices for most of this year are partly to blame according to the food bank's executive director.
Several charitable organizations operating in Lubbock say giving is down and the need is up. So consider this, please give a little extra during this year's U Can Share Food Drive. And if you can't give as much, well, we all understand. Times are tough and maybe you're hurting, but even one can of food can make a difference so please do what you can.
NewsChannel 11 has set a goal of 600,000 pounds of food and every last pound is desperately needed. We'll be collecting food at all United Supermarket locations but we especially encourage you to drop by our U Can Share headquarters located at the United at 82nd and Frankford.
