School is starting and Snack Packs are ready thanks to Wal-Mart!!

School is starting and students from all over the rural areas of the South Plains will have Wal-Mart to thank for access to Snack Packs that provide food for the weekend! We were awarded a $60,000 grant from the Wal-Mart foundation, to fund six of our nine snack pack programs last Spring and this Fall.  1 in 3 children in our rural service areas is affected by food insecurity. The South Plains Food Bank’s snack pack program is an effort to alleviate hunger for some of those kids.

You are invited to an Art Exhibit Preview on the First Friday Art Trail!

The exhibit is from 6 - 9 p.m but we will be hosting an open house from 5 - 6 p.m.! Please come and enjoy refreshments from your friends at the Food Bank as we take a look at the struggles and triumphs of six individuals who wish to inspire change. Details are below:

Come over for a visit!

I can’t begin to tell you the number of times we have heard guests who attend one of our monthly Behind the Scenes Tours comment “I didn’t know you did that!"  Even staff and volunteers have been known to say the same thing. 

The Behind the Scenes Tour is an opportunity to learn more about our mission and the people we serve.  What happens to the food you donate?  Where else does food come from and where does it go?  How many people did we feed last year?  What is a mobile pantry?  What is a Kids Café?   Who are the GRUB kids and what do we grow at the Farm and the Apple Orchard?

Please be our guest for a 60 minute,describe the image free box lunch and tour on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 12:00-1:00 pm.

RSVP or questions?  Call or email Melissa Henderson at 763-3003 or mhenderson@spfb.org or register online at www.spfb.org.
