It is with great joy that we celebrate the completion of the fall semester. From September to December, SP Food2Kids has packed and sent home a total of 23,882 snack bags with kids over the weekends! This is amazing as it is our first semester after acquiring the program and organization. This is a testament to how generous and caring the Lubbock community is!
Keep an eye out for new volunteer opportunities coming in the new year! We will begin packing for the Spring 2024 Semester on Thursday, January 11th.
We have had amazing volunteer support in packing, and we couldn’t have had the same impact without them! Volunteer Groups: First Baptist Church, United Supermarkets U-Crew, National Charity League of Lubbock, Junior League of Lubbock, TTU Criminal Law Association, TTU Honors College, TTU Student Government Association, TTU’s Dr. Bernard Harris Pre-Med Society, TTU Law School Students, South Plains Mall Administration Team, and many more groups/individuals/families!
Financial support is another key aspect of operating SP Food2Kids, and we have had some very generous donors! Spotlight donors: Junior League of Lubbock, First Baptist Church, South Plains Mall, Walmart on South Loop 289 and Quaker, The Rachel Family Foundation, Betenbough, Methodist Home for Children, and all other donors not mentioned. Your investment is imperative in accomplishing our mission to combat food-insecurity on the South Plains.
South Plains Food2Kids is currently serving 1,870 kids every weekend with snack bags (Numbers for the week of December 31st, 2023). We anticipate our numbers to grow even more across the spring semester, and we’ll then be serving more than 2,000 food-insecure children every week.
Our mission at SPF2K is much bigger than a single group/organization, it is a community effort! This is why we continually need your help with packing snack bags every week! In addition, we continually need financial support to purchase food every week, and we ask you, your family, and even your business to consider donating to SPF2K this year!
