“Mom and dad loved people and they expressed it by feeding others...children having food every day should be a basic human right... ” – Beverly Malouf-Debowski, Daughter of the late Eleanor and John Malouf
The South Plains Food Bank received $155,000 from the John B. Malouf Estate for the “Feed our Kids. Fuel our Future” campaign, a campaign dedicated to alleviating childhood hunger across the South Plains over the next five years.
“My parents raised 8 children and our kitchen was always filled with neighbors, family, and friends,” says Beverly Malouf-Debolski, daughter of the late Eleanor and John Malouf. "Mom and Dad loved people, and they expressed it by feeding others. They really cared for their community. Children having food every day should be a basic human right and this is a very important cause."
Every year, the South Plains Food Bank Kitchen of Hope provides meals for over 3,500 children across the area. In recognition of this significant donation, the Kitchen of Hope will be dedicated in memory of Eleanor and John Malouf.
