South Plains Food Bank
In 1983, fellow Rotarian Ray Diekemper identified the need for a food bank in the South Plains area to address hunger and poverty in our region. The Rotary Club of Lubbock committed to make the South Plains Food Bank its primary community service project by providing an annual contribution of $30,000. Distribution through the existing SPFB network of charities now provides 270 outlets in 22 counties of the Texas South Plains. In addition, SPFB helped begin the West Texas Food Bank in Odessa and the Abilene Food Bank.
Since its inception, SPFB has grown to be a self-sustaining organization with strong community support and continues to end hunger, give hope, and enrich lives.
