The High Plains Food Bank Together We Can Food Drive Kicks Off Monday
It's that time of year and the High Plains Food Bank is getting ready for their annual Together We Can Food Drive. It's the perfect time to help feed the hungry in Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle.
WHAT: High Plains Food Bank - Together We Can Food Drive
WHEN: Monday, December 4th - Friday, December 8th
WHERE: Market Street United - 26th and Georgia
Stop by Market Street United and donate to the High Plains Food Bank. You can donate non-perishable food items or make a monetary donation.
Food Items they they are currently in need of:
Pasta and Pasta Sauce
Plus for every $1 donated the High Plains Food Bank can turn that into 5 meals.
If you cannot make it out to Market Street then know that you can make a donation at any United Supermarket, Amigos or Market Street in the Texas Panhandle.
Last month the High Plains Food Bank served over 9,500 families in the Texas Panhandle and the need continues to grow.
15.4% of people in the Texas Panhandle struggle with food insecurity. These are people with jobs, or senior citizens, or even college students. People who work or are on social security who just don't have enough to put food on the table. They make the decisions to pay for gas or heat instead of food. They have to choose a prescription over food.
That's where the High Plains Food Bank comes in and that's where they ask for your help. So if you can, next week make a food donation or monetary donation during the Together We Can Food Drive with the High Plains Food Bank.
