The mission of the South Plains Food Bank is to alleviate hunger and give hope to the community. When you plan a gift as part of your overall estate and financial plans, you allow us to continue our efforts to help thousands of people in need find food, services and other types of assistance that will lead them to productive lives. A planned gift can be of any size; none is too small.
To navigate through Planned Gift options we have setup an easy to use website. Please visit: www.spfblegacy.org
Workplace giving programs offer the opportunity for employees to contribute by having designated amounts deducted from each of their paychecks. Workplace giving is not only easy and efficient, it allows a company and its employees to work together to benefit the community.
When you contribute to a payroll giving campaign, your smaller donations quickly add up to make an even bigger impact in the fight against hunger.
For more information about starting a Workplace Giving Campaign at your place of employment, please contact Lyn Garcia, Chief Development Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 806-589-5919 to get more information.

Kids Cafe helps start children on the right path for success by providing meals and snacks during after-school programs and in the summer. Children also receive food safety lessons, nutrition education and hands-on instruction to help create healthy lifestyles.
Growing Recruits for Urban Business, or the GRUB Program seeks to provide area youth with entrepreneurial and leadership experience as well as life skills through the management of the 5 acre Carolyn Lanier Youth Farm. This facility includes an urban sustainable farm and a youth center and seeks to equip at-risk youth with the tools to provide valuable and meaningful service to the community.
Our Mobile Pantry is designed to help hungry people in our rural areas gain access to nutritious food. This program is a partnership between the South Plains Food Bank and a supporting agency in the rural community we help support. Currently we are at 26 sites, distributing approximately 2,000 food boxes a month.
Across the South Plains, 1 in 4 children are considered food-insecure or are lacking the resources to access an adequate amount of nutritious food. However, in some of our rural areas, this number increase to 1 in 3 children. Operating out of 9 different locations from established Kid’s Café’s, the Snack Pack program provides children in rural areas a pack of food to take home on Friday to help get them through the weekend. We pass out 465 snack packs a month to hungry children in the different areas of the South Plains.
Thank you for your donations!
