Let Us "Show Off" with Our Food Bank Tours

Most people think they know what the South Plains Food Bank does. They think we simply get in food, sort it, pack it, and distribute it to families and people in need of food assistance. You’d be right on those points, but we do so much more!

To learn more about your Food Bank join us on the first Tuesday and third Thursday of the month as the South Plains Food Bank opens its doors to community members for a free tour.

The first Tuesday of every month at 4 p.m. Food Bank staff welcome neighbors across the South Plains – and offer light refreshments, share stories, and provide a guided tour of the facilities.

Both presentations only last about an hour.

“I have loved being part of the South Plains Food Bank tour,” said SPFB Director of Special Projects Karen King. “People often comment about how amazed they are that we do so much; that we feed so many; and that we touch so many lives.”

The Food Bank has been offering tours for years, but recently begun to offer the first Tuesday of the month afternoon tour.

“We want everyone to be able to attend,” said King. “But not everyone can make it at lunch. So we thought we would provide an alternative – an afternoon tour.”

“This presentation can be ‘packed up’ so to speak and offered to civic clubs at their monthly meetings, Wednesday evening’s church presentations, for your employees at your place of business,” said King. “We enjoy meeting new people and long-time friends of the Food Bank everywhere we go. It is wonderful to be invited to someone’s home, church or business to share all that goes on at the South Plains Food Bank.”But you don’t have to settle for those times either and, according to King, they can take their “show on the road!”

To reserve your spot at the next tour, or to schedule the Road Show call Karen King at 806-763-3003 or register for the tours online at spfb.org. And remember to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
