We exist to alleviate hunger in The Panhandle. We do this in many different ways.
First, we provide food, a basic need. We delivered 7.6 million pounds of food in 2016 to the 29 counties we serve, in the top of the Texas Panhandle. According to 2014 data from our most recent hunger study, we served an estimated 92,000 people, in 8,000 different families, through our partner agencies. This is a tangible way you can see what we are doing at the Food Bank. It has been a long-standing tradition since our inception to deliver shelf-stable and fresh foods to the people that need them. We distribute the food through our over 179 agencies that work hand in hand with us to pinpoint need in their communities. We deliver this basic need to people who need help getting back on their feet.
